Hello out there. I have a Sony Vaio (System Model VGN-AR320E) I purchased last year and I'm having problems trying to write to a DVD. The brand I am using is TDK DVD+R 1-16x 4.7 GB.

It will burn music CDs, but even that get finicky sometimes (maybe bad discs?). In fact, last semester it wouldn't read a CD for a class I was taking.

Can anyone help me?

I have precisely the same problem (and on a machine with a nearly identical configuration). Did you receive a reply or find a solution?
