Pio 216D cannot read Verbatim MCC 03RG20 DVD-R


I bought 50 brand new Verbatim 16x DVD-R MCC 03RG20 discs, today. My Pioneer 216D 1.09 didn’t have any problems till now. After I put the disc into the drive it scans it and does some funky sounds for a while, then it stops and every software I use (e.g. IMGBurn, DVD Identifier) show this message:

ERROR : Unable To Initialize Disc In Time : Not ready - Incompatible medium installed [02/30/00]

[FONT=Verdana]I crossflashed it to 216L 1.10 with DVRFlash and that didn’t help either :frowning:

My 7 year old notebook drive reads and writes the disc without any problems.

OS is Win7 x64

Thank you guys!

After booting my PC out of hibernation, I heard the disc spinning loudly in the drive. DVD Identifier confirms my happiness! It works, but why the hell? It wasn’t even a “real” restart.

It doesn’t matter now, it works!
