This is a decent dvd burner. Go to Emprex and update to latest firmware (A091). Make sure you have adaptec aspi installed. I have burned cheap discs without any problems. They play on my stand alone dvd players.

Used to have all the problems that you were mentioning, but then moved to dvd-R sumvision gold discs - Told very low error rate. But still had problem when using Nero Software. The I halved the speed of the burning & all burning's have been perfect since.
Curent problem is with trying to get the drive to read DVD+R RW disc's which I'd Burned on a Goodmans X-Pro DVD Recorder. My computer just freezes, and I have no choice but to reboot. Reading of all other types of disc's is fine, it may just be the RW ones.

I purchased the I/O Magic IDVD16DD, which is a rebadged BTC 1016IM. With upgraded firmware (A07m)it is working fairly well. I've burned Teon DVD+R 8x (CMC-MAG-E01) and Maxell +R 4x (RICOHJPNR01) with no problem. Using DVDBITSET 1.08, I've set the book type on my DVD+Rs and have had no trouble in my APEX 1010W Dvd player or even without bitsetting on my RCA 8005N DVD Recorder/Player. I've had mixed results with TDK +R 8x (YUDEN000T02), though I haven't tried them again since I upgraded the firmware.
