Normally, I find this to be simply an upgrade issue.
As with Recorders, new brand of media is being made by the Media MFG's all the time. They may have the same names or looks, but the spec's for the media are not the same.
The Media MFG"s provide these spec's to the Recorder MFG"s, so they can include into the Recorders firmware. So when the media is inserted, the recorder has a Read/Write strategy for the media.
If it is unable to find a Read/Write strategy for a new brand of media, it uses a Generic Read/Write strategy, and this causes the problems you see.
So many times, simply upgrading the firmware will resolve the issue. But when it fails, you must resort to trying different brand of CDRW or CDR media, depending on the software used, such as InCD or Nero.
