Wow, this thing is behind the 108.
108 can burn more of the 8x media at 12x.
RITEKR04 @ 4x??? :a


#3

so far i have got only one 6x DVD-RW
how Pioneer 109 contrived a 6x dvd-rw burning


#4

yup. it is far far behind 108/A08. hope future f/w will make it better.

just checked out the booktype. sadly, both DVD+R and DVD+RW cannot be changed to DVD-ROM :a


#5

Ouch, that 6x DVD-RW PI errors look tall. :o


#6

should be 12x only, not 16x.

also. YUDENT002 should be 12x, not 8x. my eyes really blurred :bigsmile:


#7

yup. not very nice. hope future f/w will improve it.

the Jap Yss showcased his latest Buffalo drive that is a Pioneer dvr109 and the f/w revision is different, v 8.05

i think this f/w is autobooktype-capable. 1.01 is not, except for DL+9.

and his drive is MIJ :bow:


#9

Where was yours made?


#10

Perhaps in absolute speed. If scans show that the DVR-109 can burn TY, Sony, or Maxell (made in japan) better at 12x than the DVR-108 at 12x or 16x than you can convince me to buy one. I haven’t seen any comparison scans, but the point is burn quality trumps speed in my book.

Still observing…


#11

Firmware 8.05? :confused:


#12

Whoops, just saw your pic that shows your drive was made in China.


#13

8.05 is from the BUFFALO (OEM) version.


#14

There must be 2 variants on CMCMAG.AE1

My CMCMAG.AE1 can be burnt at 12X

Add RITEKG05 can be burnt at 12X


#15

mine is made in china :bigsmile:


#16

Yeah, I smell Memorex labelled discs…


#17

A medialist is now available from here: http://www.pioneer-dvd.com.tw/d_file/DVR-A09%20medialist.xls


#18

Hmm or maybe slightly different firmwares between raygay and Jack.
My Memorex brand CMCMAGAE1 burn great @ 12x on Pioneer 108.
