Pioneer DVDR-212 woes

I’ve just replaced a Pioneer 109 with a 212.

The first dvd burnt fine. I then burnt another to DVD-RW and it played ok until about half way then the playback would keep freezing up, then was ok again for 10mins then the problem came back.

I erased the disc using Img Burn and tied using it for something else.
I seemed to burn ok, but failed when verifying at around 50%.

Tried Nero7 and same happened.

I done a simulation burn in Nero and that came out fine, then went to burn and after a minute got a burn failed error.

I tried other RW discs which all worked fine on the 109 and it fails at erasing in both Img Burn and Nero.

All the media is Verbatim and the same batch were fine on the 109 drive.

The 212 is detected ok in BIOS etc and the firmware is the latest.

So any ideas whats wrong? Is the hardware faulty?

Are you using an 80 wire ide cable?
Also, DMA should be enabled.

The problem is the controller.

Disable RAID and if that wont help, update the SATA controller BIOS!
