What is the best DVD-R media for a pioneer 106 RD firmware 1.07 RCP1?


#2

i have pio 110 and pio 112 but not 106. I found that taiyo yuden is the best when it burn with pio drive. verbatim 8x is also good but not 16x. It’s paint in the ass.


#3

That’s interesting. If you are talking about 8X, 16X rated media, not burn speed, I’ve experienced the opposite on my 111.


#4

My DVR-A06 firmware 1.08 likes 16X Verbatim DVD-R.

@kentb53
you have a best pio drive I’ve seen so far. Maybe i jumped in pio at a wrong time. But pio 112 still in early aged. Times will tell.


#6

Where do I buy Taiyo Yuden DVD-R 8X Authetic.


#7

Taiyo Yuden DVD-R is a good choice, but do not use TY 8X DVD+R in your Pioneer 106.


#8

rima.com or supermediastore.com are good places to go. Rima.com 're cheapest on daily basic but supermediastore.com often have a good deal. Checking in both site to find the best for you.

Do they burn @2X or 4X? That’s sheer luck, cause surely they’re not supported in firmware.


#13

I can burn them at 4X, which is amazing.



#14

Indeed! Thanks for the scan. :flower:

As a user of several generations of Pioneer drives (DVR-106, 107, 108, 109, 111), I’d have to say that Pioneer drives love Taiyo Yuden media and burn incredibly well on them according to my scans. Most people here will likely agree that the best -R TY media is media code TYG02 (8x) in terms of burn quality. Although the 106 doesn’t burn past 4x and I haven’t personally tried TYG02’s on a 106, this would be my preferred media for any Pioneer drive.


#16

The Pioneer mediacharts will underline this.


#17

I had good results with TYG01. But the 8x -R TY should be ok.

I can test out a verbatim DVD-R 8x in my 106 if anyone really needs me to. Just ask :slight_smile:


#18

TYG03 works good at 4X.



#19

make sure you burn those verbs at 2X :wink:

ICCAFSN, do all those pioneer drives show up as Superdrive on your Powermac?
