Like a few other people in this thread, I am also having problems with this drive. I burned my first DVD (Verbatim) last night and it appears to have worked fine. However, my problem has been with recording audio. I tried a number of different media before I realized that this drive recommends a few specific brands. So, I tried TDK CD-R Audio and it still did not work. I have tried Sony CD-R Audio, Maxell CD-R Audio Pro, and Maxell CD-R (white face). In the beginning, the Maxell CD-R Audio Pro discs worked. Then, they stopped. So, I tried the white face Maxells. They worked, and then stopped. Now, nothing works, except the DVD that I burned last night. Is this drive really this fickle? If so, I am done with it. But, based on earlier reports in this thread, it's almost a whore to any type of blank media. Someone please help me! I'm frustrated beyond belief!
edit: The problem is that it will not recognize the blank CD. I put it in the drive, the light blinks for 15 seconds or so, and it is never recognized.
