[qanda]This thread is about the Pioneer DVR-111D / DVR-710. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Greetings my fellow CDFreaks. Been away from the forums for a while but decided to try out Double layer DVD burning for once.
Just got a new DVD Home Cinema system that is region locked to region 2and can't play my original region 1 DVDs anymore [I know I should have checked.... ]
So I thought I'd get some Double layer DVDs and use Nero to do a straight DVD copy. Using AnyDVD [18.104.22.168] for the region code removal I made the image fine and got a power calibration error trying to burn the disk.
I decided to update the firmware on my Pioneer DVR-111D and found I was a few revisions behind so I downloaded 1.29 from Pioneer, flashed and rebooted only to find that it still wouldn't burn. This time it correctly recognised the Blank as an 8x speed one but still no joy burning.
DVD Identifier tells me this about the blank
