Pioneer 212D - not burning correct?

vbimport

#1

hey,

I recently bought a new dual layer dvd writer pioneer 212d i used to have pionneer 112 (which worked great).

This one is sata and im using windows xp 64 bit.

The thing is when i back up my xbox games its not copying correct. The disc looks really werid (see picture) Im using the exact same methods as my old writter.

It is a dual layer disc. ive wasted about 6 discs so far and all discs look weird.

In picture please notice the outer edge of the burn area and inner edge

any ideas?

@ mg_uk,

Welcome to the Forum.

What is the Media MID (Manufacture ID and Media Code) [Example: MKM001] of the Media you are attempting to use in your Pioneer DVR-215D?

The Media MID can be obtained by using a utility program similar to DVDInfo (http://www.dvdinfopro.com) or DVD Identifier (http://dvdidentifier.cdfreaks.com).

Other than the problem depicted in your #1 posting what other specific difficulties (if any) are you experiencing with your Pioneer DVR-215D?

Regards,

I only recently built this pc the other day first day ive tried burning discs

@ mg_uk,

It has been discussed numerous times throughout the Forum that the only DL Media that consistently produces quality error free results is Verbatim DL MKM001/MKM003 Mitsubishi Kagaku Media. ALL other DL Media is considered suspect and should be avoided (not used).

@ mg_uk,

Why are you burning at 2x speed?

If you review the Pioneer DVR-215D Disk Quality Scans of Verbatim DL MKM001 – MKM003 Media you will see that the best results are obtained by burning this Media at or slightly lower than Media rated speed.

2.4x is supported. Any other suggestions as im pretty sure this isnt a disc problem, but a hardware one


#11

What chipset is port 5 actually going to?

Do you have ICH9R with 6 ports or is it an older one with 4 ports and then ports 5 & 6 run off a different controller?

What ‘mode’ is the sata controller running in?

ATA, AHCI or RAID?

It needs to be in the 1st or 2nd.

If it’s the 2nd, make sure you install the latest drivers for the controller (maybe the Intel Matrix driver set/application?). Checking that your motherboard bios is up-to-date wouldn’t hurt either.

The error codes being returned to the software (0xDF, 0xFA) are out of the ‘normal’ range that a drive would use so I expect they’re coming from something else.

its a ASUS M2N -SLI delux motherboard.

How would i see what mode my sata controller is running?

bios is up to date

HOW ever can you [B]copy[/B] a xbox game with Imgburn? :cop:

[QUOTE=mg_uk;2071748]Just had a verb disc in and its done the same :frowning: burnt [B]at 2x[/B][/QUOTE]

Kinda impossible, 2.4x is the slowest possible speed.

[QUOTE=mg_uk;2072355]How would i see what mode my sata controller is running?[/QUOTE]

Look in the bios.

There must be an option to turn the entire thing on/off somewhere and next to that will be the option to say which mode you want it running in, ATA (standard)/AHCI or RAID.

You might also do well to actually follow the cable from the drive to the motherboard and find out exactly which port it’s connected to incase you have 2 controllers on your board - 1 that’s part of the main chipset and another on a 3rd party controller (like Silicon Image, JMicron etc).

You should be able to look up which port goes to which using the motherboard manual.
