I have a 5 month old Akai DVDRW120 that has been working quite well. Recently I have been noticing this problem where the recorder sometimes is not able to read partially recorded DVD +R discs (which are unfinalized). I have to try several times (powering down, ejecting and reloading disc) before I can get it to read the disc. This is a problem as I cannot reliably do timer based recording on a partially recorded disc.
This problem does not happen on blank DVD+R discs.
Using a DVD lens cleaning disc helps sometimes but not always.
I have been using Ritek DVD+R 4x (media code RICOHJPN1) from Newegg & Amazon.
Any ideas on what may be going on or how to solve this problem?

Aside from testing another brand of media (although yours is certainly good quality) I'd start thinking about taking advantage of warranty service on the unit.
