Boy, a difficult question. Everyone will give you a different answer. I've found generic disks to be just fine, but many folks will tell you to go with a major brand. I must admit that I lean toward that.
So, you should safely be able to do a good job with Sony, HP, etc. Can't remember all the choices right off.
Like in all other areas, if you go with a brand you recognize and with a company that has been in business a long time and you trust, you hardly ever go wrong.
But be advised--just because the company name is on it doesn't mean they actually manufactured it!

Am in process tranferring vinyl to cd using sony compact disc recorder and not computer,ran out of audio discs last week purchased some verbatim discs high speed rw but will not work on my machine can you...


Hi raymackie265
You are right , don't use cds for computer ( cdroms ) but well audio cds . Pay attention to this point when purchasing new stuff . Regarding the issue with cd-Rw , it's a compatibility issue with your Sony device and you need to check if the recorder will accept CD-RWs . If yes ( and it should be yes ) , try to find lower speed discs but you need to find audio cds . I ' m using a Pioneer recorder and it works fine with any kind of audio cds , not with cdroms .
Best regards ,
fanaudi .

Ok so my sony viao vgn nr120e caught a virus. I finally ordered the recovery cds but my cd drive no longer works. I really do not want to replace the cd drive. Is there anyway to bypass the recovery cds...


Buy a 4GB (or larger) USB memory-stick.
Connect it to a different computer.
Copy all the files from the recovery-CDs onto the USB memory-stick.
Move the memory-stick to your computer, and try to install from the files on the USB memory-stick.

Optical drive sony viao vgn fs840/w won't register


try downloading the VIAO update tool
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNFS840W&upd_id=2775&os_id=7

this will ensure you have the latest software + drivers for your system.

problems with CD drives tend to be problems with the IDE drivers, so it may be a good idea to download the latest Chipset drivers either directly from sony (or using the tool above)
or downloading from the intel website

Device Won't Recognise Blank CD-R Media or Certain Music CDs.


try and see if you can pull a directory using explorer,, sometimes if you record to the full 80 minutes capacity, the disc will return an error,,,even if you recorded it on that drive...also i know this may sound strange but on the drive tray itself take the mount where the laser is mounted and extend it out to the furthest travel point ,,,gently,,,do not force...load the disc, and see if it is now recognized,,,sometimes it is a timing issue, and this way the tray/laser recalibrates itself....
