My Sony CRX-320 drive has always had a problem recognizing the newer (in the last 2 years) batches of TY CDs. Sometimes I have to try 4 or 5 times before it will finalize recognize it, but once it does, it's fine. It has no problem with the older TY (gold CDR-74ZY) discs.
My question is this: If a drive has a problem recognizing TY CDRs, does that mean that it won't do a good job burning them? When I put in a blank TY, it always burns and verifies with no problem, but when I put it back in after the burn, it doesn't recognize it, or it takes a LONG time to recognize it. By the way, these CDRs play fine in all of my other units.
What is it on the disc that the drive needs to see in order to recognize it, because it seems that once it gets past that "hurdle," everything is fine!
i've been having some issues myself, but with TY DVD-Rs instead. i have noticed all of my dvd duplicators have dropped in burn speed and i've had my drives contantly reject discs. i wonder if there may be something unusual going on...
