I've seen some threads about media and one about the recover error, but not the two together. I bought two spindles of Ritek, which seem to be one of the recommended brands for this unit in this forum. The first spindle would usually go into recover mode 2-5 times per disc when dubbing from the HD. Occasionally the first time it would work. The second spindle is better, in that it either works or goes into recover once or twice. This is exceptionally annoying. I have only had a couple coasters out of about 95, maybe I should've tried to dub that seventh time. I bought 10 single-wrapped generic CompUSAs that have worked flawlessly. I'm looking for recommendations from other E80 users on bulk discs that have worked well for them in terms of not going into recover and coasters. Thanks.
