Are you happy with your PIONEER DVR-109 drive so far? (overall)


#2

Not really, seems to have an advantage over my 108 with G05 media however on expensive verbatim media it has a fit and hands me back a piece of plastic that spikes all over the place when scanned on my 851s whereas my 108 shines with them, perhaps a FW will sort it out who knows, and that unsitely bloody ring it leaves behind on all discs! :a

yeah im definitely annoyed with this thing - seems one thing after another … using FW 1.40 right now

anything i’ve burned with this drive won’t play in my samsung dvd rom drive so i had to replace that

hangs at times during burns - wehre I have to shut the computer down manually to stop it from spinning - no other way to have it stop and eject

some of my xbox burns wont work in 3 others xboxs, yet work fine on mine … everything ive burned prior (with an older LG) worked great

Well,RMA your dive…


#5

No problems here.
Firmware 1.40 has burnt everything I’ve thrown at it. (I don’t do Xbox.)
Plays on Wharfdale, Mustek, Liteon and Panasonic standalones I’ve got.
Brilliant with Verbatim D/L disks.


#6

i really should … i’ve ordered it from far away so thats the only reason i haven’t yet … plus i dont have a back up burner to use in the meantime
