I just bought a Pioneer 212D and it’s burning both DVD-R and CD-Rs fine. When I test the Disc Quality using Nero CD/DVD Speed scanning using a LiteON SHM-165H6S, the results are excellent. However, when I try using the Pioneer 212D drive that burnt the discs to do the scan, I’m getting very bad results. For CD-Rs, I would lots of C1 and C2 errors, and DVD-Rs, lots of PI and PIF. Can anyone explain this to me? Has anyone tried to do any scans using the Pioneer 212D? Furthermore, when I have the Pioneer 212D selected to do the scan for a DVD, I cannot select any speeds except MAX or 8X – does anyone know why? Thanks for any help at all.
Here are some possibly relevant information about my system:
