Infamous "Illegal Disc" Error...ARGH

Here’s my log report, I really hope you guys can help. I have tried burning to various disc brands using cd’s as well as dvd’s. Thanks in advance.

Anybody? Help?

I don’t know. Maybe a bad burner? Can the Pioneer read discs okay?

Do you have two external hard drives and one external optical drive?

If you have disc copying software like Alcohol or CloneDVD running you might try disabling that.
