I have a Mac G4 Panther 10.3.9 512meg 1ghz Powerpc with a Pioneer DVR-A09 DVD Burner, Toast 7 and PatchBurn3.1.2en installed
I recently upgraded my firmware to the A09 1.58 revision and I can no longer burn CD’s, I am able to burn DVD+R media (Memorex) no problem, and DVD-R media burns sometimes and reads -r when it feels like it ( this has always been the case no matter what firmware is installed).
I am trying to burn audio cd’s out of Toast and iTunes. Both programs stall forever when writing lead in. I’ve tried modifying speed and DAO and TAO in Toast , still no go. The media I am using are the ugly Memorex Black CD-R 40x 700mb 80min. I have used memorex before ( the normal non black ) cds before and sucessfully burned DAO cds with cd-text ( with past firmwares ).
Any Ideas on what might be causing this?
Any suggestions on what CD media I should start using ( that is normaly available at regular stores such as bestbuy compusa etc ) for this drive.
In advance I apologize if this was posted in the wrong section.
Thanks in advance as well for any suggestions or help to come.
