Hi all. This is my first post. I am newb-fresh.
I have just purchased a black Pioneer dvr-111d dual layer capable dvd burner. I was hoping for a significant upgrade from my old super slow NEC +R only DVD burner that I have had for just on 3 years.
It is installed on the same 80pin cable that the old NEC burner was installed on. Jumper setting is cable select I believe (same as the NEC burner setting). It plays CDs and DVDs. But burning? No good. I have made about a dozen coasters today and frankly I’m more than a little cheesed off!
It has current firmware v1.29.
I use nero (v6.x) and dvd shrink (v3.2) successfully with the old burner but i have no luck with the new one. The drive is physically burning the disc but it never finishes a burn successfully. Re-inserting disc returns a “D:\ ACCESS IS DENIED” message. I read the review on here on this drive and thought I’d try some of the nero tests e.g. the Nero CD-DVD Speed test.
During the running of the Nero CD-DVD Speed test I get this message: “ERROR! L-EC UNCORRECTABLE ERROR (031105)”
Is this serious?
Happy and willing to follow any advice…
