i bought a pioneer 108 about 2 months ago
i took my old 4x toshiba writer out and poped the pioneer 108 in
changed the jumper to slave as thats what the toshiba was on in my computer packard bell ixtreme 6060
i then checked the dma settingsprimary is set todma mode 5
secondry is set to dma mode 4.
first of all i couldnt write cd’s at more than 16x , as it would fail at 32x( no probs with dvd’s)
so i updated the firmware to 1.14
it writes cd’s at 32x now no problems.
after about a week i noticed , using dvd decrypter when i wrote a dvd using datawrite grey 8x discs also ritek 8x printables and piodata 8x printables
sometimes the disc would stop writing 0.0 write speed with dvd decrypter.
this always hapens at 9% through the burn ,this is where the speed jumps from 6x to 8x, and sometimes it hapens later at abuot 45% when the speed changes fron 8x to 12x, the write speed goes down to 0.0 , sometimes it goes back up and completes the burn,
but sometimes even after 20 mins it wont start to write again just sits there at 0.0
does this hapen to anyone els ?
could it be the media or is the drive faulty?
thanks for any sugestions
