107D - Internal Target Failure

Unfortunately my Pioneer 107D can’t even burn my TY discs I got from rima! It was burning the previous ~10 TY discs fine until now. Does anyone know what’s going on?

Perhaps your burner is coming to his end of life…
The best method to check this is to use it in another computer.

I surely hope not! It’s been through roughly ~300 burns I estimate. But trying it on another computer may be a second resort since I would prefer to have it work on mine. :frowning:

Pioneer doesn’t document this error code. You could always ask Pioneer?

You could try burning the media at a slower speed, or trying a different brand of DVD+R, Verbatim for instance.

The error could perhaps be related to the laser overheating, or a DMA CRC error. If it is the latter, make sure you are using an 80 conductor IDE cable.
