I have just bought a new Sony Vaio NS series from Misco. I cannot make the recovery dvd - keeps saying please insert blank disc. Have spoken to Sony and they have sent me 2 new downloads and sya I have the correct dvd ( DL - R) Brand new so it is blank, but still keeps coming up with the same - Sony help desk now closed so wondering if anyone has any suggestions? thanks

DL-R is that dual layer?

i used dvd+r to create my vaio recovery disks and it was succesful. I would suggest using another type of dvd just to be sure
#2
are you using vaio recovery centre?
#3
answer to both yes dual layer - thats what the guy at sony said to use - also yes using the recovery centre
#4
Have you tried another disc?

:roll:hoorah it works!! tried a cheap Tesco dvd and doing the recovery now - bit annoyed though the Sony guy told me to use Dual layer - cost me £10 for pack of 5 on E bay - perhaps they are faulty how can I tell??

They don't work

Could just be compatibility issues, Try on another pc.
