Strange, it is a new disk, but i have always been using this media and
never had any problems with it. (Verbatim DVD-R). It´s been 3 days
since i burned stuff on a DVD-R without any problems, but today i got
this message, i tested 3 new disks from Verbatim and one from Sony
(all DVD-R) but i always get this error.
It is likely to be a hardware issue. I presume that you have tried
rebooting the machine, in case your burner got an error which left it in
some odd state. That's a real "power off" boot, 15 sec or more of power off.
If this is newly installed hardware, this may just be "infant mortality"
on the hardware, or reseating the cables may provide information. That's
unlikely, but inexpensive.
If this is newly upgraded firmware, try going back (if you can) or check
the vendor site for a newer version.
