I have a big problem when I burn the media (cd or dvd) on my laptop toshiba satellite A300.
I have already try different mark (philips, sony, tdk, ...) but for the tdk it works one time on five.
Here I bought the sony cd recordable and when I wanted to burn, i received the message "media incompatible or bad quality"
I use the soft "cd burner xp"
I don't understand which mark should i buy ? of is this a problem of softwer ?
I have Satellite A300 too with dual boot (WXP and Win7). I use NERO burnng rom application with both operating systems and everything works perfectly.
Mostly I use DVD-R medias and I buy always Verbatim or TDK.
Which medias do you use (CD-R, DVD-R or any other format)?
Have you noticed the same problem using different formats?
As far as I know you can find info about all tested medias in the user manual.
But I use also the TDK – R (CD and DVD) and from my experience such disks are compatible.
At the other hand your disk problems might be related to the dirty laser lens.
Would recommend cleaning the lens using cotton wool tip and alcohol.
From time to time I clean the laser lens of my CD/DVD drive and this combination works great.
