I would really have some advice from you experts as my well of options dried up.
I have burned dvd’s for years without big problems. My Nec 4551 always performed perfectly, but when i bought a Xbox 360 i needed a Pioneer 111d dvd burner to make backups (according to all 360 forums)
I just took out the Nec and i plugged in the Pioneer easily. All the backups i made with the latest Clone CD on DL DVD+R played well.
Then i wanted to burn a dvd movie image with the Pioneer at 16x when the troubles begun. I tried to burn a dvd movie on a Platinum DVD-R 16x disc which worked but when i checked the disk with cd/dvd speed it found errors and also this warning L-EC uncorrectable error 031105. I also used Vebatims DVD-R and i get the same message. I burned 20 coasters so far. I even went to the shop to swap the drive as it is two weeks old but still the same problem.
What could be wrong in my setup in combination with the Pioneer ? When i plug in the NEC it burns without problems.
I burned also with ImgBurn and all buffers remain full during burning but still errors.
This is my setup.
The Pioneer is connected to a 80 wire cable and is in UDMA4 mode on secundary IDE channel in Master setting.
