My pioneer dvr-104 will not work with any of my burner programs(img burn, dvd decrypter,nero express 6, ez dub) My other dvd drive (liteon ez dub)works but it doesn’t make quality disks. I like to back up my ps2 games because I have a 6 and 7 year old that will take out the disks and leave them around and they get ruined. I didn’t have any issues until my windows xp was updated.

Here is the log.

@ mikeyb2879,

Welcome to the Forum.

In instances CMC MAG AM3 Media has proven to be problematic Media. Suggest using known proven quality error free Media that constantly produces quality error free results such as Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim Media.

Also your Pioneer DVR-104 DVD Burner currently has version 1.30 Firmware and the most current up to date Firmware available for your DVR-104 is version 1.41 Firmware. Strongly recommend up dating your DVR-104 to the version 1.41 Firmware ->

Concerning attempting to make backup copies of PlayStation 2 games. To effectively and efficiently make backup copies of PlayStation 2 games requires the use of DVD+R Media book type bit set to DVD-ROM. Your Pioneer DVR-104 DVD Burner can only Burn DVD-R Media and cannot Burn DVD+R Media to book type DVD-ROM.

Also your Pioneer DVR-104 DVD Burner is rather old (6 years old) and is only a 2x speed DVD Burner that will have difficulty attempting to Burn today’s modern 16x speed Media.

Sorry to say it is time to seriously consider purchasing a new modern up to date DVD Burner that will effectively and efficiently Burn the new modern 16x speed DVD Media.

Regards,
bjkg

I tried to update my firmware and it says available target not found and there is no media in the drive.

First get BETTER media, like Verbatim & TY.

IF you wanna update then to 1.40.
Use DVRFlash and post the output from “DVRFlash -v X:” here.
