I’ve been having this problem for a little while. I don’t know what brought it on. I was burning discs every other day with either a Pioneer 111D or an LG burner and all the discs turned out OK. Then one day I started getting major static on every disc I burned. The only alteration I made was going with CDBurnerXP. I got static, went back to Nero and the static didn’t go away.
I didn’t change media. I always use either Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim. I always use Nero (version 8 in this case). I thought it may be due to me burning discs when my tower was on its side so the drives were vertical, so I bought a new 116D. I installed it, flashed to the latest firmware, and got static again, though not as much. My other drives also have the latest firmware.
Could this be a BIOS problem? I was going to flash my BIOS because it has some compatibility problems with my setup anyway (temperature reading is the only problem I know of). I was previously able to burn discs very well with this BIOS, though.
Could it be a problem with the IDE cable? When I plugged my 116D in initially, it didn’t read. Only the 111D did. I had to unplug the 111D and use its plug on the 116D. It was weird.
Somebody please help.
