Another strange thing.
No matter what disc I check my system will not report a 6x option. Every disc will go 4x 8x 12x 16x the Sony will go up to 20x and the Verb Azo will go up to 22X report with ImageBurn or Nero.

Well isn't this just grand. We each have Sony disks with the same media ID that list three different write strategy sets.

Kelson = 8, 12, 16X
Super Eye = 4, 8, 12, 16, 20X
jjeff = 4, 6, 8, 12, 16X

Yes, the drive I used is about 10 months old and is my newest but it will certainly burn 1X if I tell it to. I wouldn't think the age of the drive has anything to do with the information it reads off the blank disk. You read a 20X write strategy; do you have a 20X drive?

I do have two other burners that are a little older (all the burners are 16X LG drives) so I will read the disk's info on them tonight and see if it matches. They are all 16X but different configurations: 1 DVD burner; 1 DVD burner/BD-ROM reader; 1 BD burner.

The obvious possibility is that Sony plays fast and loose with their disks and these variations are real.

That is what this whole discussion on media write strategies is about.

Edit: Discussion has been taken here.

I'll add my voice to his and insist the OP go to the menu of one of the DVDs involved, and from the first menu page, arrow up.

Again, the status of the disc (finalized or not) will be displayed.

Please do this before posting here again. This was the most simple way of checking out the discs and it was ignored.

Hi I am sorry that I didn't see Wajo's post. I did just what he said and I saw that in fact the DVD's were not finalized even though the Mag was set to do it when the recording was completed. I was able to properly finalize the discs in question and I tested them on my lap top and they now work as they now indicate that their status is "finalized".
All of you have been so helpful to have posted so much info to help a nube out. You guys really know your stuff. Thank you all so much.
