Can't say I've tried premium TY media in it yet, but have tried 74 min discs thinking maybe the drive was old enough to have a problem with the 80 min discs. That did not help.
Burner is a Philips CDRW2412A. I realize it's not a sheep burner by any means, but for music cd's and general data back-up....It's usually given me good results.
For recording, I had been using Roxio 5 Platinum, but later migrated to Nero Burning rom 5+. Both produced discs that play just fine on my older (6+ years old) Kenwood set top 6 disc changer even using 80 min discs. I have on occasion ran into a lost track or two in a friends "in dash" cd player, but usually wrote that off to the fact that the disc was pretty abused by that time...
2 things I have not tried yet since I started learning here is..
1) Try reducing the burn speed, see if that makes a difference starting on 74's
2) Try recording on a disk with the "audio signiture", see if maybe that pioneer rejects generic burned media and looks for that thumbprint.
The drive seeks the disk, but reports no disc inserted so it seems it's looking for something.
