I was just wondering about something. I just burned a backup of a movie on my new Pioneer 111D. I used ImgBurn 2.0 and something strange happened while burning.
First, I used MCC004 Prodisc Verbatim media and my burnspeed was 6x.
When burning, the burner has a continual green light on. At approximatly halfway through the burner light dissappeard (went black) and the burnspeed slowed in Imgburn down to 1.x something before the green light came back and burning speed picked up again. The buffers where full the whole time.
Is this normal behavior for this drive? What was it that happened?
I tested the media afterwards with verify and scanned it on cd/dvd speed and the burn seems to be fine. Haven’t done the “visual” test yet (actually watching the backup).
