My name is SLIM_MOOSE, and as you can imagine yes I’m a newb to an extent. I own a Pioneer DVR-A04, had for almost 2 years now… and I still haven’t been able to burn a single DVD. I use it to run CD’s as well burn CD’s. So I’d imagine that it must be installed correctly, whenever I insert a blank DVD in the drive, my computer either tries to load it via Win XP and then crashes. Or if I load it in the software provided MyDVD or Nero, I get a “Disc not found” comment. I’ve downloaded the newest firmware from the Pioneer site and installed that. Can anyone please give me some advice? Its a shame to have these capabilities and not be able to use them.
