DVR 116-D v1.09 burning problems

[qanda]This thread is about the Pioneer DVR-116D. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Recently purchased this drive to replace an old LG drive in my XP Home system.

I use Verbatim DVD-R disks which I have used for a good 18 months without any problems previously until my LG stopped working.

I cannot get a dvd to burn at all. I have tried several programs including an assortment of freeware ones.

Amongst the error messages I have had have been - these disks are not formatted for packet writing

and using my favourite program DVDFab Platinum I get error=116 Task 2 failed processing.

I have been trying to recopy a dvd we had made from family cine film which was put onto dvd several years ago.

Any ideas ?

thanks
