Be careful, there are two diferent problems mixed on this post, one problem is the extra large time the recorder takes in the lead-out that happens when a determinated combination of software in installed on the system. Solution, unisntall the soft that is causing this, for me it war InstantCopy 8.0.
And the other problem, that has been officially recognised by Elby, that happens only with CloneDVD burning some movies in +R media results in a complete coaster unreadable by any kind of reader, this problem will be fixed in the next release of CloneDVD. Solution, use other recording software to burn the image produced by CloneDVD, or simply wait for the next release.
for me is not a valid sollution to a software problem to "keep away from that drive, buy Nec 1300A or Sony DRU-510" when everybody knows that the pioneer is the most reliable drive and its burnings are the most compatible with all kinds of players, PS2, XBOX, DVD players, even using the cheapest media, Suki, princo, etc... (i've tried myself). this doen't mean that there could not be faulty drives, of course.
Definitely, i love mi Pioneer DVR-106D
