I got a 100pk of red coloured HP DVD-R x8 from Office (depot or max) that are the only ones that can NOT multi-session. Buy with care. I blamed v1.06 for a week before I found out all OSes, machines, and burner combos I've tried will not multi-session on this brand. v1.06 worked fine on my Maxwell,Sony, and mostly on Memorex (not the mini-RWs). Shocked

Hiya Ted-

I've used the HP +Rs a lot, without any probs, but not trying multisession on a computer. They always do 'multisession' in my standalone DVD recorder just fine.

Media bugs are hard to track, especially as so many labels come out of just a few factories. (Maybe we could create a 'bug form' for media, because usually the info given in complaints is incomplete.) HP has a 5 year warranty on their DVDs, so you can get your money back at least. Very Happy

If you're interested, there's some excellent free (winworld) info, programs and flash manuals for analysing & controlling DVD media at :

Yes, I think there are several free tools for Windows which will tell you the actual manufacturer of a DVD or CD. That information really needs to be included here, if possible. Does anyone know of such tools for Linux?
