Pioneer DVR-110d

Hi i have been having problems with my burner. It will get to either 40% or 60% and then it will stop burning. I have tried a couple of different medias. It seems to work for rewritables but not for regular -r’s, I have been using nero 7.0 and i changed my ide driver from nvidia to standard 2 channel ide controller. The buffer seems to go a little crazy on the drive. I will post a log of the last dvd i tried burning. I think it burned it fine but the buffer levels didnt stay constant. I have an athalon 2500+ with 512 mb of ram so i dont think that should be a problem. I have also updated the drive with the lastest firmware from pioneer

I have posted the log below.

The buffer fluctuations are normal. At least for my FW version it is (8.37), so I’m not sure about the buffer when using version 1.37. Does you drive show up as UDMA 4 in the device manager? are you using an 80 conductor IDE cable?

Also nero 7 sucks right now, you’d be better off using version 6 until all the bugs are out of 7.

You can use ‘DVD info pro’, version 4.52 to scan the quality of your disc, you can then save the picture and post it here. This will also tell us the media code for the disc your using. :slight_smile:

Yup, that Nero version sucks big time.

Oh what is wrong with nero 7 exactly? And the media i am using is ritek G04. You said your firmware is 8.37? how did you get so high? I will try burning another disc and see if i get any problems. Could there be a conflict with my other dvd drive. I had a lite-on before. I moved it to slave and put the pioneer as master but the liteon still shows as the d: drive.

Nero 7 is buggy, and Nero 7.0.0.0 is the crappest of these versions.
(PS: Posting a serial is no good idea.)

8.37 is the OEM firmware from Buffalo, same as the Pioneer 1.37 but with additional AUTO-Bitsetting for +R media.

What about the IDE cable and UDMA version the drive is using?

Without these info further discussion is useless…

The ide cable i dont know, its just a normal ribbon cable, came with my motherboard, or lite-on writer, and in device manager it shows as Pionner DVr-110D, cant find any thing about udma 4

Okay yes it is on UDMA-4
