Pioneer 109/A09 Burn Scans (Results Only)

I keep popping into the Pioneer forum to see how the A09/109 is progressing but I can never find any scans without doing a lot of searching. So I’ve decided to start this sticky results only thread, where you can post your burn results for this drive.

The result can be a either a burn scan, a transfer rate test, a surface scan or a quality scan or any combination of these.

I look forward to seeing your results :slight_smile:

Latest Firmware: v1.50B

Nice move COdeKing. I’ll post some quality scans tonight.

I made already a Thread right here:

Here is the Link to my Scans:

Here are my scans. I won’t post any transferrate tests as they were all perfect on my ND-3500.

And a few more

PDU, what version of CD Speed are you running?

Here’s my first scan of my FujiFilm 8x +R (Yuden000T02) media. It was burned with the Pioneer 109 @ 8x, firmware 1.50.

Eluder: Does the buffer still jump all over the place from 2% to 100%?

When i load up Disc Qaulity test I cannot pres start, anyone know why?

The Pioneer’s don’t support Nero’s Disc Quality tests; Pioneer’s are not known for being very good scanners at all, you could use DVDInfo to scan, but I personally wouldn’t really put much value into the results from the Pioneer’s scanning.

Mine has never really fluctuated a great deal to be honest. It’ll drop when WOPC kicks in, so maybe about 3-4 times per burn, but it’s never caused me any issues. I didn’t really pay attention to 1.50 while burning, but next time I burn something with the Pioneer, I’ll check for buffer fluctuations.

then how did you do your scans?

I used my BenQ DW1620. Notice the bar at the top of the window of each quality test image, it states the drive used.

Ah I get it, so you burn in the Pioneer and test in another drive. I can do that when i get my other DVD burner back from repair… The only DVD ROM I got does not like the media I normally buy so I cannot use that.

Just recently bought my pioneer 109.

The Pioneer drives do not support PIF scanning, only PO (don’t ask me to explain the difference though). You can use DVDInfoPro instead but again the Pioneer drives do not produce reliable results - or at least the results are nowhere comparable to scans performed on Litey and BenQ.
