Not DVR-113KG. Does it matter?
My problem is this. I had a Samsung DVD burner that burned DL discs, then stopped being able to burn or read them.
Now the same thing seems to be happening with the Pioneer DVR-1910LS (DVR-113NP). So I have backup data I can't access.
Also, I have several ProShow Gold slideshows that I wrote to ISO files. When I use MagicDisc to emulate a CD/DVD drive with these ISO's, everything works fine and the slideshow plays with my VLC Player correctly. But when I use ImgBurn to burn them to DVD+R discs, it fails every time. I have tried HP and Memorex disks.
So the burner seems to have stopped being able to successfully burn anything. I now have a stack of coasters a foot high.
I thought before returning the unit I would try to upgrade the firmware, but there is nothing on Pioneer's website that seems to allow for this.
Has this happened to anyone else with this specific burner? Am I missing something? What should I do next?
