:doh:Problem with dvd-rw discs recorded on Pioneer Dvr-3100

I am having problems with playback of dvd-rw discs that are recorded with the machine. Anything that I record starts to skip and jump towards the end of the disc, after about an hour and 20 mins. Iv’e changed all of my blank dvd-rw discs from Tdk to Maxell and they still skip.

The recorder will play proper dvds from a shop with no problems and only skips with discs that have been recorded with this machine.

Any ideas what the problem is, could the drive be dying. The drive inside the recorder is a Pioneer Dvr-106-xa.

This recorder was made region free from the place that I bought it from but they have now shut down, could they have bodged the upgrade, Iv’e had a look inside the recorder but cannot seem to find a mod chip attached to the board, could have maybe been a software mod I suppose.

The recorder worked fine when I had it about 18 months ago

My internal DVR-106-XA drive just went bad on me too. I’ve taken it out of my Pioneer recorder and need to purchase an exact (or compatible with the DVR recorder) replacement drive. Any ideas where I can get this at a reasonable price?

Wanna know what happened just before my drive went bad? I tried recording an EP 6-hour DVD-R full of cartoons for future road trips with our kids. I was able to finalize that disc and now my drive will not successfully LOAD any other blank or non-blank disc. Crazy, but I think the drive burned out or something doing a 6-hour write. Be careful if you try this. I should have gone to the HDD first and then dumped to DVD-R.

Let me know if you have a source for a replacement drive. I’d like not to have to toss this awesome recorder in the trash. Email me at javanni@carolina.rr.com or visit my website at: w w w . p e r f e c t p o p c o r n . c o m

I sent mine away to an authorised dealer and was told that they couldn’t find anything wrong with it and it cost me £50 for their time. I’ve now given this recorder to a friend for his children to watch dvds on and bought myself a Panasonic recorder instead.

Exactly the same happend to me as well. I have taken the DVD unit out and installed it in to the PC and guess what there is no problem with the DVD unit, it’s something else in the Pioneer unit DVR-3100!
