After solving DMA off probs, heres a new one

My pioneers are playing up again, i solved issues with help from here regarding the DMA being off, it was due to the nforce drivers, i now run my pc without these and just use the standard windows drivers, DMA is noted as being on for ALL drives, however both pioneers are taking longer to start burning than it actually takes them to burn the discs, in most cases they just abort with an error after about 4 or 5 mins, the disc is ok and is not burnt on and i can try again, can anyone note anything from the log please ?

Ahem, get an updated version.

What brand of dvd’s are you using? Check with Nero CD/DVD speed or DVDinfo.

that version works fine with my nec drive…as for media i am using verbs

Maybe, but Nero 7.0.0.0 is full of bugs, so it needs to be updated anyway.

What is the latest version of nero ??? thought that was and if it is full of bugs then nero should give me a free upgrade right ?? seeing as i paid them for it.

Well i am entitled to online upgrade to version 7.5 and still it does the same, here is the log for that.

I have a pioneer 109 also and I found that it would do this with nero sometimes with certain disk and also stop with clonedvd. Funny thing I could take the same disk that did not burn with nero put it im my 111 and it would work or I could take a can of air blow off the disk and it would work in the 109. I just figured there were specs of something on the disk left over from when they were made and the 109 did not like it. never did think the 109 was that good of a drive.

hmmmm, im dubious about the specs, verbs are a very good disc and i think it was just coincidence that it burned after, if i kept trying and trying then it would eventually start burning, it burn about 1 in 10 tries but the fails never coaster the disc.

Have reverted the drive back to firmware 1.50, dunno why really, guess im just clutching at straws as i have tried what everyone has suggested heres the log from dvd identifier.

Unique Disc Identifier : [DVD-R:MCC 03RG20 ]

Disc & Book Type : [DVD-R] - [DVD-R]
Manufacturer Name : [Mitsubishi Chemical Corp.]
Manufacturer ID : [MCC 03RG20 ]
Blank Disc Capacity : [2,298,496 Sectors = 4.71 GB (4.38 GiB)]

[ DVD Identifier V4.3.0 - http://DVD.Identifier.CDfreaks.com ]

Further reading would suggest these disc are useless in a 109…anyone dissagree ???

Why??
