Pioneer DVR-1910LS scan

#1

The first burn and scan done on my new Pioneer DVR-1910LS…(AKA…DVR-113KG)
This burn and scan was done on my XP rig, burn speed 8x

sad news is after updating the f/w to 1.02 it is reading like crap and has trouble burning DVD9

For a pioneer drive, that scan looks…normal? I’m surprised you don’t have 20k PIF scanning with a pionner

@ StormJumper,

Its been passed numerous times that Pioneer Drives are poor Quality Disc Scanners and the results obtained using a Pioneer Drive is highly suspect.

You fail to provide the Media MID of the DL Media you are attempting to Burn. Concerning DL Media - Verbatim DL MKM001/MKM003 Mitsubishi Kagaku Media is the only DL Media that consistently produce quality error free results. All other DL Media is considered suspect and should be avoided.

The DVR-113 does not seem to be based on a Pioneer design. First of all the scan results look too nice and second point is that scanning on Pioneer drives is not available on the latest CD-Speed versions like the used 4.7.7.15 so it rather seems to be a rebadged drive from a different manufacturer.

Should be an Asus DRW-2014 clone (which is MediaTek).

Does the actual drive’s casing look similar to this Pioneer-made design [scroll down to the actual top of the drive]: http://www.cdfreaks.com/reviews/Pioneer-DVR-115D-DVD-Burner-Review/Introduction.html

or like this ASUS-made design [scroll down to the actual top of the drive]: http://www.cdfreaks.com/reviews/ASUS-DRW-2014L1T-LightScribe-Multi-DVD-Writer-Review/Features-amp-Technology.html

or like neither design?

The Pioneer box has the ASUS-type drive design, so I’m assuming the drive casing has the ASUS-style drive cover [the style with an almost-rectangle in the top surrounding a few notches], and not the Pioneer design [the design with 7 cone-like notches in the top].

yeah Tim i think Liggy said it all. It’s a rebadged drive made by Asus maybe like Cressida said.

Only real way to know is to take it apart. Or do what Albert said.

Looks just like
http://www.cdfreaks.com/reviews/Pioneer-DVR-115D-DVD-Burner-Review/Introduction.html

but really does not matter any more, it is now a door stop for my shed.
It stoped reading and the burns are not readable by any other drives, thats what I get for updating the f/w.
Guess I’ll try another brand.

Any updates on what the DVR-1910/DVR-113 actually is?

@ negritude,

The DVR-1910LS is the ‘Retail’ version of the DVR-113KG ->

http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Shop/DVD-Burners/Lightscribe+DVD+Burners/ci.DVR-1910LS.Shop

Both the DVR-1910LS and DVR-113KG Drives are ReBadged ASUS ASUS DRW-2014LI ->

Also if you reviewed your recent “DVR-116 and 216 announced” posting thread you would see that Forum Member KTL also informed that DVR-1910LS was a ReBadged ASUS DRW-2014LI.

As suggested by Forum Member KTL if you used the Forum “Search” you would have been aware that the DVR-1910LS/DVR-113KG were ReBadged ASUS DRW-2014LI.
