I have this system with Software version 7.2.0-elm-01-2-656 and have no problems burning my DVD's. I thought I would try this as I see everyone saying they have problems. I came home today and burned to DVD's one after the other. I am using the Memorex 4X DVD-R media. I even test this to make sure I could play the recording and there where no problems. This is the original system with no hacking done.
