111D@111L can't burn in EAC

I tried to burn a test CD in Exact Audio Copy to determine the correct write offset for my Pio and found it wouldn’t burn for more than a few seconds. I tried several different brands of CD-R including TY, but no joy. My other burners work in EAC with no problem. Is this likely a burner or EAC problem?

The Pio burns CDs easily in both Nero and Burrrn. In fact, it’s my best CD burner.

Read offset is at +48. I’m using the latest EAC.

I just tried my Pioneer 111L twice as well. No Go! I was suprised. I had a warning pop up that said Write Error, Write Block, Logical unit not ready.
This was after about 30 seconds of burning. I have the write offset set at +18 but if nothing burns it doesn’t matter. I wonder if this has anything to do with the crossflashing? Or is it an EAC thing?

Thanks for letting me know. At least I’m happy it’s evidently not a problem with my setup.

If you’re using the ASPI interface try using the SPTI interface instead. If you’re using the SPTI interface try using the ASPI interface instead.

EAC => EAC Options… => Interface

Thanks for the suggestion, DrageMester. I’ve been using the external ASPI interface, but tried the “native Win32 interface for Win NT/2000/XP” (is that the SPTI interface?). I don’t have the ASPI interface from VOB software installed, so that’s grayed out.

Unfortunately, I still can’t get my Pio to burn longer than it takes to turn the CD-R into a coaster. EAC doesn’t have any problems with my BenQ and Lite-On. :confused:

I dont think it’s relevant when you’re burning a test disc (as opposed to burning CUE sheets) but you could try it anyway:

If you’re using CDRDAO to burn try turning that option off. If you’re not using CDRDAO try turning that option on.

EAC => EAC Options… => Write

“Use CDRDAO for writing in the EAC layout editor” is grayed out. It looks as if I’m going to have to stick with Nero and Burrrn for CDs. Maybe there’s something about the 111 that EAC isn’t compatible with.

I don’t think so. Using EAC to Create Offset Test CD or to burn a CUE sheet works perfectly here on my Pio 111D@111L 8.29 in an external enclosure (PL3507 over USB) and with EAC 0.95b3 without CDRDAO using an external ASPI (Nero) interface.

Came up with this old thread in google while doing my research on the very same problem (unable to burn in EAC with Pioneer DVR-111L, it stops with error “Write error! Write blocks:Logical unit not ready, long write in progress”).
Just to add some info if anybody’s looking for solutions. Here is what i found at EAC support forum

The Pioneer DVR-108 isn’t compatible for burning with EAC. I guess the LG GSA-4160B and the LG CED-8120B aren’t compatible either. For example, my Pioneer DVR-106 can’t burn with EAC.

Although he speaks of 108 model, i guess that applies to 111L as well.

My 112D wasn’t able to write, either. I think I used the “native” burning capabilities of EAC. There might have been one time I tried CDRDAO and it worked, but I am not too sure of that.

I ended up having to make the image with EAC and burn with ImgBurn [using the .cue file].

There is an EAC commandline switch you can use (I don’t remember it, but it contained the word “Sony”) that will allow you to burn with offset correction with the Pioneer. However, I sometimes ran into trouble at the lead-out of the burn when using this method. I’ll try to Google it… it’s been a while.

Meh, couldn’t find it. I guess you could always use a small tool like Steve Morphet’s WAVTools to shift your audio data 18 samples and get an AccurateRip-friendly burn from your Pio.

And now I realize the OP has probably had kids and put them through college since his post… oh well. Sorry for hijacking this thread, RusI.

I think that this is a problem for Pioneer drives and EAC. Both drives that I own (112 and 115) can’t burn with EAC native drivers. IF you use CDRDAO, they will burn but only one session (meaning that you can’t leave the CD open).

Thank you for the confirmation. :flower:

It’s nice to know for sure, and to have this thread as a reference. :iagree:
