I have been having big troubles with my Pioneer DVD drive -
Can not get it to burn dvd’s - it goes thru the process but data verification fails - maybe 30% are correct, 60% incorrect, some missing. The files are on the disk, but damaged - these are mostly Photoshop files, and on opening them Photoshop gives an error message that pixels are damaged - due to faulty drive / incorrect peripheral cable termination, or scratched disk.
Also fails to read CDs, DVDs consistently - can see the files but cannot complete an install - it claims the .cab files are corrupt - but I can load the disks fine on my old Lite-On CD drive.
I sent the drive back to Pioneer for servicing as I thought the drive itself was faulty, but they have returned it saying all is fine - but I still can’t get it to work!
Can anyone help me figure out what is going on?
I have an AMD Athlon processor, about 3 years old, Shuttle AK12A motherboard - 1048K RAM, free hard drive space of c. 100G…
seems like all should work but doesn’t - Is this really a drive problem? Or something w/ motherboard? Have no idea, any help would be appreciated…
