Well a quick check here says it should manage 4 x DVD write speeds:-

The only thing I can think of is that lens may have some dust on it, try a CD lens cleaning disk or a blast of air from an aerosol spray can.

After this, I'm afraid its down a replacement.

Hi! I had the same problem before when writing files to disc. What i did was to lower down the speed ex. from 16x to min or from 4x or 8x to 16. That should also fix your problem.

I just burned 6 movies, I noticed that when it goes to finalize, it ejects before finalization is complete. I use FAB Platinum 4.1. I'm going to go into the settings and use Nero burning rom before I remove my Sony and put in my other burner (Plextor) better then Sony I think. I used Nero before and it helped, maybe it will help this time. Why 3 movies did not play, and the others did is beyond me. Dan J

you need powerdvd or windvd which has the decoder for dvd. can it read regular data cd's ? like install a program?

Sony DRU 510A... | 183 views | 0 helpful votes


you cannot finalise after the dvd has been recorded on as if it's not rewritable then it cannot be reused, or rewriten or altered in any way.

NO DEVICE STated fits a SONY what,
we now know its 1982 wall wart but no DEVICE known
and was hacked, by others, wow./

device not known, and matters.
