Can the Pioneer DVR 109 burn DVD-R DL disks? I have updated the firmware to version 1.58 and it is supposed to burn these disks but I haven't had any luck. Any suggestions
It can, see here: http://wwwbsc.pioneer.co.jp/product-e/ibs/device_e/fset_dev_e.html
What exact media is it?
The media I am using is Ridata DVD-R DL 4X. It is the Inkjet White Double Layer.
That could be the problem. Verbatim DVD-R DL is supported of course.
What mediacode does your -DL media have?
What do you mean by mediacode? Where do I find it?
Only the MKM01RD30 Verbatim -R DL's will work with the latest firmware. The RIDATA's are not supported.
Thanks for the info. Can you recommend a burner that will burn these Ridata discs. I bought 25 of these so I would like to use them
Replacing them with other media would be easier, not?!?
The latest LiteOn and BENQ drives have support for this media in the firmware. Whether or not they will burn them is a good question. Ritek media is, at best, unimpressive.
