I believe in my postings in this thread I have provided you with a valid working link for Official Pioneer DVR-112D version 1.24 Firmware (http://club.cdfreaks.com/1947787-post23.html), and a valid working link for the MediaCodeSpeedEdit tool (http://club.cdfreaks.com/f87/mediacodespeededit-support-pioneer-dvd-writers-153213) which will patch Pioneer DVR-112D Firmware to remove the Pioneer DVR-112D RipLock to increase the Ripping/Reading speed of your Pioneer DVR-112D DVD Burner.
Nowhere in this Forum Posting has any Forum Member suggested turning to NewEgg for Official Pioneer DVR-112D version 1.24 Firmware. NewEgg positively doesnâ€™t enter in you 1.24 Firmware/Ultra DMA Mode 4/of RipLock problem. Please do not attempt to blame one of the USAâ€™s best On-Line retailers for you failure install version 1.24 Firmware/enabling Ultra DMA Mode 4/removing Firmware RipLock when ALL the information for correcting your problem was provided to you by Forum Members in this thread days ago.
There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with the Pioneer DVR-112D DVD Burner. In fact it is one of the BEST DVD Burners available.
You are misinformed. Your â€œ30 Minutesâ€ is Not â€œRead Timeâ€. This â€œ30 Minutesâ€ is the Total Time the CloneDVD software program is â€œRipping/Readingâ€ your original Commercial DVD Move Titles AND also â€œTranscoding Compressingâ€ the original Commercial DVD Move Title. Many things can effect this total â€œRipping/Readingâ€ and â€œTranscoding Compressingâ€ time. If you have both your Pioneer DVR-112D DVD Burner and your Computer HardDrive installed on the same IDE Channel can drastically slow the total â€œRipping/Readingâ€ and Transcoding Compressingâ€ time. HardDrive disk fragmentation can adversely effect the total â€œRipping/Readingâ€ and â€œTranscoding Compressingâ€ time. Excessive background MultiTasking during the DVD Movie BackUp process can adversely effect the total â€œRipping/Readingâ€ and â€œTranscoding Compressingâ€ time. Various Computer Software Program can complete with AnyDVD-CloneDVD software programs and adversely affect their performance. So donâ€™t go off half-cocked and blame your â€œ30 Minutesâ€ â€œRead Timeâ€ performance on your newly installed Pioneer DVR-112D and until you completely and thoroughly investigate all the other numerous possibilities.
bjkg, I tried to do what you suggested. It’s obvious that I am not grasping what I’m reading. I went to the firmware site & when trying to download it my pc told me I already did it. I tried to redo the firmware, but I got a black box-then a message saying “Target not found”. 2) Regarding the MCSE- this is over my head & if I screw up I’m in for an even bigger mess than I currently have.
So, why am I having this difficulty with a drive that simply plugs in & plays? Why did I install the Ultra cable? It did nothing.
Pioneer tech support told me if the unit reads, writes, & produces a perfect “burn” and the read speed is about 30 mins. the unit is defective. I know nothing more about this. It appears that having Vista is not helping me at all as most info is for XP. I did, however check the DMA mode and it is set @ Ultra DMA 4, “Enable DMA” is checked off in the Current mode box, and that’s as far as I have gone.
I know you are trying to be helpful, but you are light years ahead of me regarding this situation. Are you telling me that the Pioneer tech is wrong & this burner is OK? I will throw in another Curb Your Enth. disc & ck. the read time again. Again. the read time is where the slowness is- not the write time.
Try to tell me in layman’s terms what I am supposed to do & I’ll get it. I am a hands on person who is quite handy, but I am not a tech as I have mentioned before.
This all seems so silly over a simple R & R of an existing drive. Does it make sense to you? The DVR-112D is a likeable drive. I just can’t connect with all the technical info I’m reading. I do appreciate your help. Sorry I’m not getting it.
