Here is my problem. My Pioneer 106s will not spin down if I put a disc in there. CD or DVD. It spins all the way up and even if I don’t access the drive and just let it sit - it continues to spin at high speed.
Using Nero DriveSpeed I have found out that for some reason it now defaults to 8 minutes for spin-down. Using DriveSpeed I can temporarily fix the problem - but on reboot it’s back to 8 minutes.
I have no idea how this problem came about. Or how to fix it. But I have called Pioneer and they weren’t able to help - and I was encouraged by someone on abxzone to come here assistance.
Basically, I have tried the following:
- flashed firmware on Pioneer to 1.22 a total of two times
- flashed my motherboard BIOS
- reinstalled the OS, left autorun to default and didn’t install tweakui
Since firmware flashes aren’t modifying the proper bit in the firmware I don’t know what to do about this. Is there a way to fix this permanently? Can someone write me a special flash file that will take care of this?
I really have no idea how this happened - I never burned DVDs on this PC, it’s a standalone reader and I never loaded Nero Burning Rom or anything other than PowerDVD. This is a complete mystery to me.
Please help! If you can fix this for me I will
