"You mentioned all my dye's as "bad media", the funny thing is that my NEC ND-2500A burns it flawless and so did the Pioneer DVR-109 until this problem occured. And the main reason i bought Ritek G05 was because alot of people said that it is a very good media.. it worked good for me earlier"
That's why I'm not saying your media are the source of your problem. Though it could be a part of it. Could. BUT the media you use will certainly bring new problems for you in the future, because they're all medias that degrade at a scary fast rate.
About G05, I've never been convinced that they were great (still using lots of G04 here though), only had proper results with Traxdata branded and Maxell branded G05 discs - you may read these two recent threads about G05 problems:
And my personal experience with G05 discs:
"I mean if they tried the burner in another computer and the problem persist it has to be something with the drive, or am i wrong?"
Highly probable :iagree: (Er... that it's the drive!)
"Can you recommend any good firmware, or maybe one that came with the drive because it should do the job i am pretty sure, since my burner worked very good earlier"
Here is the problem. Your drive is not working with 1.55 and 1.57, though mine and most 109 users's drives DO... :doh: - there is no such thing as a "secure" firmware for the 109 in general. I use 1.55.
Yeah, there must be something wrong with your drive, maybe it's defective but I have no idea of what can cause a drive to have such a behavior, working with firmware X and not with firmware Y. Personally I would take the drive back to the shop.
One thing you can do is use DVRupdate to flash back to whatever firmware you had before upgrading. See if that works. But you'd be stuck with old writing strategies and media support.... so this issue MUST be fixed.
