Need a firmware update?

vbimport

#1

Hello everybody.
I’m having a problem with my recorder recently, i can’t burn or copy dvds anymore. I’ve destroyed numerous of dvds in order to see what’s going on and while doing this I was reading loads of threads about it. My recorder is probably damaged.
Anyway, I didn’t have a problem with cd burning, until I got the latest version of Nero (7). I cannot burn a cd with this version. I always get this ‘illegal error’. I don’t think it’s my recorder’s fault this time as I tried to burn a cd with Winamp and it worked. Do you think I need a firmware update in order to use Nero or just check the preferences? Will a firmware update solve the problem with dvds as well? Any tips? I’m on a Sony Vaio VGN-B1XP. Here’s the log from the latest unsuccessful cd burning. Check it if you want. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

BUMP!
Anybody?


#3

1.10 is the latest for the DVR-K14, if I´m not mistaken?!

You should test that in SIMULATION MODE first.

Let us know the result of the simulation. … … … .


#4

Nero 7 has a number of bugs. Use Nero 6 if possible or another burning program.
You can try CDBurnerXP Pro 3 which is free.
By the way are you trying to backup protected material, if so what other programs are you using?

Hello and thanks a lot for you replies.
TOSHIBA-er, I have to be sure about the right firmware, so how should I do that test? Not quite familiar with these things myself unfortunately…Uum, will this firmware help me burn dvds again? Coz if that’s the actual problem, maybe I won’t need to buy a new recorder then. Just a thought.

Weedougie, you’re right about Nero 7, I’ve read that other ppl have similar problems with this one. I think I’ll stick to Nero 6 then. I back up material, but they’re not copy-protected or anything. I use either Nero or Sony-Record Now.
