This disk is NOT suitable for use with DVDXCopy!

Everytime it asks me to insert blank media, DVDXCopy will spit out a message saying that:

This disk is NOT suitable for use with DVDXCopy!

My system:
Dual PIII 1.3 GHz, 1024MB RAM, Sony DRU-510A CD/DVD-+R/RW, Win XP Pro, DVDXCOPY 1.5.2

Before you suggest that I make sure the media is blank, let me reassure you that I have tried NEW, BLANK DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, and DVD+RW in this drive and receive this same error.

90% of the time, it doesn't work. When it does work, it will error out on the 2nd disc. Unfortunately, I have to wait for 30 minutes in most cases while it prepares a disc before I find out it is not going to accept the blank media.

The drive is not bad either - when I use DVDXCopy Express, it works every time flawlessly. But I prefer the ability to keep the menu, so I don't use Express unless I have no other option.

Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated, as I have YET to be able to get ONE SUCCESSFUL 2-disc backup out of DVDXCopy. I am becoming very frustrated and disappointed.

I dealt with this problem before, but I'll be darned if I can find that thread again.
It seems to me that DXC thinks it's going to write to the original DVD, which it can't and generates that error. Try waiting for Windows to go through it's thing with identifying that you've removed the original DVD. While you're waiting check that drive in Windows Explorer and let Windows tell you there's nothing there. Then insert the blank DVD and again wait for Windows to do it's thing with recognizing the blank, check in Explorer again and make sure Windows tells you that something's in that drive, but it's blank. Then click the burn button after it turns green.
Please let us know what you find out as you're not the only person that's reported this.
