hey all i got my pioneer 110D today and i also have ridisc 8x DVD-Rs...
problem is when i removed my old writer (pioneer 4x 106D) and put the new one in... and started nero i could only select 4x.. ok i thought we'll do one at 4x... then next disc it allowed me to burn at 12x, 8x, 6x and 4x the discs were 8x so i thought the 12x odd however i tried... coaster... 8x... coaster.. 6x... coaster.. it only burns fine on 4x!
there was some kind of error message on nero i can't remember but the other one which i got much much more was unrecoverable read error...
so to summarise the symptoms:
unplugged old writer pioneer 106D
plugged in new writer pioneer 110D
would only write at 4x
other speeds cause coasters (about 2% into burn.. wouldn't even burn in fact! but ruins disc it would seem...) i hear the disc spin up, then down, then up annnd after a while error failed etc.
i read on the installation sheet vaguely something about 80 wire cable being needed or something but... hmmm well i'd have thought my ide cable would've been fine?
anyway please help! desperate!!
1024MB DDR PC2200 RAM
does anything else matter? o.O
I recently changed my pagefile size to double original amounts as my computer was slowing down when burning DVDs at 4x with my 106D and would only burn at 2x...
anyway uhmmm... so help! thanks!
oh yeah i thought new version of nero might be needed and even though it was a small upgrade (184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11) it might've solved problem but this didn't help either...
edit: oh and i'm starting to think it's these DVDs :S here's a link to the ones i bought...
under 8x the ridiscs..
