I bought Pioneer 108 the other day. When i try to burn quality DVD or CD media I always get several burning errors. When i compare original and burned data (CDCheck) 1 to 10 bytes don
t match - infact only 1 (one) bit per corrupted byte is bad. I never get CRC reading errors - so i think the data is corrupted before/during data translation to the burner - burned burned it that way inserting right CRC codes. .avi .mp(e)g .mp3 files are not sensitive to those kind of errors, but .exe .zip .iso are. .zip archive will not unpack, for instance. Tried to burn with several software products under Win98se and WinXP. I always got the same results. Went to friends, and tried burner on his machine. Surprise! It works fine - 0 errors.
I think the problem is hardware/driver related. I used to have problems with Lite On CD recorder which I solved by upgrading motherboard`s BIOS to version 26.
1.What can i do to solve the problem?
2.What will i gain if i upgrade firmware from version 1.06 to version 1.14. I`m not sure if firmware upgrade voids warranty.
Thanks in advance.
