Ok, I'm getting a pretty good supply of silver coasters here. I'm trying to record a data disc, but having a heck of a time. I slide in a DVD-R, and it tells me I have to format it 1st, so I do. The the data seems to record ok, then it tells me to make compatible via DLA, which I do. It says it does that, and ejects the DVD. When I put it back in the same computer, it says the DVD needs to be formatted, or hangs up the DVD.
