OK, I finally got the firmware upgraded on my Memorex True8X to make it the Pioneer 107d. However, the upgrade did not fix my problems burning to DVDR.
I’m using NERO 6.3 and I get a write error at the beginning of every DVD burn. I’ve tried Memorex, Fuji, and Dynex media all with the same results. I’ve tried slowing the write speed to 2X.
Here are the errors I get in Nero:
TOCType: 0x00; Session Closed, disc not fixated
Status: 0x04 (0x01, SCSI_ERR)
HA-Status 0x00 (0x00, OK)
TA-Status 0x02 (0x01, SCSI_TASTATUS_CHKCOND)
Sense Key: 0x03 (KEY_MEDIUM_ERROR)
I have cleaned Nero off the system and reinstalled 3 times usings Nero’s clean program. I have tried other burning software with the same result.
The drive WILL burn CDR’s and will play any media I insert.
