I bought Pioneer 109 to replace my 107 (year old). It came with 1.17 firmware so I upgraded it to 1.40 and then to 1.40 A09XL version (with DVRupdate 0.9).
I'm also using Nero (latest version - 126.96.36.199)
My question is, no matter what speed I select for burning media, (I tried different media, speed writing 4x, 8x, 12x, "plus" and "minus" media) buffer goes empty to 10% and then charges itself back to (about) 97% all the time!
And then, when burning media is down to about 85%, buffer empties and charges itself bout 10 times till burning is 100% complete. I am talking about recorder buffer, read buffer is always on 100%!
This thing never happened with my 107, buffer was always full. I know that it's normal for buffer to go empty and fulls itself when changing speeds during writing but at 4x there should be no such thing. Or maybe I'm wrong?
Is this normal?
