I recently bought a pioneer DVD-A06 and had loads of problems. It could write DVD-R fine but that was it. It wouldn’t recognise CD-R and CD-RW or write to them. It would see DVD-RW as 1.99GB audio CD and couldn’t format or write to it. I sent the drive back and got a replacement (lucky as I’d upgraded the firmware to 1.07 hacked before doing anything!!).
The new unit still sees DVD-RW as 1.99GB audio but can format and write to it OK. It also recognises CD-R and CD-RW now too. However, it STILL can’t write to either of them!! I get “Invalid Block Address” as soon as the caching finishes.
I can’t believe it’s another faulty unit. Surely it must be something I’m doing?
Using Nero 6, Win98se and firmware 1.05 (don’t want to upgrade the firmware until problems sorted).
