After I upgraded my Pioneer DVR-110d firmware to 1.41, it didn’t write dvds correctly anymore: after burning, Nero gave me sector errors.
So I decided to downgrade my firmware. With DVRFlash everything went ok, but I’ve got the same result. I downgraded from version to version, but once it gave me strange error messages: When I tried to use the official firmware I got “failed to move to the normal mode” error. When I used DVRFlash I got “Could not send the Flash command (Sense: 04 4C 01)” error.
I tried DVRFlash under Linux, everything went ok. Reboot, and try again in windows got the same error messages. Repaired in Linux, reboot, and test it. Now it writes everything ok, but I realised that it doesn’t read correctly. When copying after about 4 Gb BSOD message of MACHINE_EXCEPTION_ERROR comes out, and system halts. In linux, after about 2 Gb, the copying stops, and the cd-rom halts. Couldn’t umount the dvd-writer, and so the system couldn’t perform shutdown.
Now it seems to me, that my drive doesn’t read correctly… How can I fix it? (My drive is on secondary master, using 80-wire conductor cable.)
