^^^^^^^^ ^ Sounds like no-name media... What
did it say on emballage? The catch is that at least initial DRU-500
firmwares are very well-known for performing poorly with no-name media.
Well, it doesn't necessarily mean that it's still case for DRU-510
firmwares, but I would still recommend to test another media brand,
explicitly recommended by vendor.

Just more mysteries. After initial -Z session second track normally
appears as blank, with "Next Writable Address" coinciding "Track Start
Addess." Can confirm that already very first -M session failed with
"last session is not empty" error? Or did first -M session has started
and then terminated for some other reason? But even if the latter is the
case, then there should either have been 3rd empty track or 2nd track
would be incomplete. I mean unit does appear confused and it might have
everything to do with media being poorly supported by firmware... A.
