I'm new to these forums but have searched for this problem and not found anything. Wondering if you can help.
I've recently purchased a Pioneer A06 DVD Rewriter and am having problems. Let me first explain what I CAN do.
I can write out DVDs. I've successfully backed-up Blade II using Xcopy Express under Win2000 server. I did 2 copies. One to DVD-R and one to DVD+R. Both copies played OK on the A06 but my player downstairs only likes DVD-R so I've only checked that version out on another machine.
Now to the problems.
Using Nero 6 under Win98 and Win2000 server (dual boot) the A06 doesn't recognise CDRW media.
Also, if I insert the DVDRW media that came with the drive it shows it as being an audio CD with a single track of 1.99GB. If I use the application that came with the drive (Pinnacle Systems Instant CD/DVD) I can format the DVDRW but at 60% it ejects it then brings it back it. Then finishes the format and says all OK but the media then shows as an empty drive. If I try to access it, it says insert media. Can't write to it at all.
Nero 6 doesn't recognise the DVDRW either.
I read somewhere else it was due to the ASPI driver and the latest Nero driver sorts it. So, I downloaded and installed it. From within windows (w98) the DVDRW showed correctly (i.e. without the single audio track). But when I started Nero, it balked at the driver and asked me to re-install Windows driver.
Instant CD/DVD doesn't like the Nero driver either.
I flashed the firmware to 1.07 region free.
Any ideas? If you need anymore information I'm happy to supply it. Thanks in advance.
