    Hi guys!

    I got SONY DVD RW DW-G120A DVD Writer yesterday!
    But I faced one strange problem!
    Its writing local DVD w/o ne problem but whenever I try to write MoserBaer DVD, its giving ERROR:

    Illegal Disc

    [​IMG]

    What can be the reason behind the problem? :?:
    Is the problem in the DVD Writer itself or Sony DVD Writer doesnt support MoserBaer DVDs? :!:

    Pls help me guys, I'm very disappointed with this Writer... :cry:

    lol! everyone posting about unvisible's comments, someone look into vishal's problem! ;)

    hey vishal, its the first time i'm seeing this problem till today all i've faced is that samsung drives produce coasters wid moserbaer cdr/rws. try a firmware update if you can. cdfreaks.com should be it i guess. hafnt hit on this site for quite sometime now.

    SOny's nothing but a **** copy of Liteon.In most of the forums I found posts which says SOny had many problems .

    ANd @ vishal

    DOnt use Moserbaer Media they suck.Use SOny optical media always.

    And use Deepburner instead of Nero .
    http://www.deepburner.com/

    Very few people have had problems with Sony drives. Which forums are you talking about?

    MoserBaer is one of the best and most reliable makers of optical media.
    And for your kind information, Sony dosen't make optical media. They source it from MoserBaer, put their own name on it and charge a premium.

    What makes this Deepburner better than Nero? No one has even heard of it. Nero rocks. Why do you think all drives come bundled with Nero rather than other software?

    thnx guys!

    @infra_red_dude
    thnx buddy!

    I also found the same site while googling yesterday and didnt find ne firmware upgrade for this model!

    I think its new and there is no upgrade for it...

    [EDIT]

    @mohit
    I'm surprised man!

    Why its not working for me?
    All other medias r working fine but not MoserBaer!

    And I also searched on net and found many reviews about the same that MoserBaer media doesnt work for this model!

    I'm using Nero 6. May be thats the reason behind this problem!
    I'll try Nero 7 asap.

    Not true in all cases. I own a Sony DRU 810A which is Benq DW 1640 rebadged. I've crossflashed it to a BenQ so I can run BenQ QSuite.

    To the original poster - you have just come across a bad(rejects)/fake/incompatible batch of discs. It's time to dump them and move on. Cut your losses, and be wary of what you get and where you get it from next time. OR, if you're lucky you could sell them to some sucker. Also, they may work fine in another drive.

    This time, buy from another shop. Also try burning these discs with another burner. If nothing else works, move on to DVD+R's.
