I’ve just bought my 108 I’ve upgraded to the latest official version.
I’ve been buying arita 8X disks from a supplier.
The first batch I’ve got will work fine upto 12X without any prob’s
I ordered 100 of them the other day and when i’ve tried them they will only offer 4X recording.
I’ve tried them on my mates sony and it offers 8X with no probs.
I’ve phoned Pioneer support which offered no support and just said if it don’t work it never will and tuff was the general info.
I know it’s got to do with the write statergy as i’ve used dvdinfo the first batch shows up with up to 12X and the second only shows upto 4X.
Pioneer drive seems to be the problem here not reconising them as 8X.
I’ve noticed that the inner ring number of the disks changes and if I put them in order I can geuss which ones will work ofr not i.e the ones that start with J4-03L Work fine all the others i.e J4-11L etc will not be reconised in the pioneer but will in other recordable drives.
Also when flashing a drive the number of times that it has been flashed knocks down the number allowed on the drive.
Does this only happen with pioneer offical firmware. and can you stop it doing this otherwise you might run out of changes allowed.
