Hi everyone ... How you guys doing ?? This is my first post and I really would appreciate your help, if at all possible.
Yesterday I recieved my Pioneer 111d in the mail, I set it all up and made sure that I used a 80 wire IDE ( I bought two, one for my HD to) and also made sure that my Pioneer was set as master with the black end of the ide cable going into the connector and I made sure my LG-4167b was set as slave with the gray connector going into its home, and the blue going into motherboard, I am using 80 pin ribbon cable not the tube type cause I really didn't see a need in it, plus I picked up 2 ribbons for like $1.25.
I started up my computer let, the drivers install, and than restarted and followed by a test burn on a CD-R to make sure it worked. it did. I already checked to see if it was in what mode it was in udma-4 ... So I thought cool it works, so I decided to Cross Flash it for DVD-RAM purposes, and I did that with no problem, easy as "1 .. 2 .. 3 .." three steps and it was done well actually 4 cause I upgraded to 8.29 from 8.26 I used the 111l FW to.
Alright well the real problem starts here ...
I went to burn a dual layer with IMGBURN, ( Matrix: RICOHJPND00) set my layer break and away I went ... Or so I thought I got a "POWER CALBRATION" Error WTF !!! I than tried again except this time I used CLONECD, it looked like it was burning set at 2.4x also tried at 1x but about half way through the disc like 51% it stopped burning DISC burning failed. What I thought was weird it wasnt showing any use of the of the PC buffering that stayed at 0% the whole time ... When I pulled out the disc it was written on, so I am really stumped why I keep getting this error. Also at 2.4x or 1x can you hear it burn, because it was very quiet.
Sorry for the long post ... I am not sure why it was not buffering, does anyone know ?? Also want to know what I have to do to make it burn ??
I have read alot in the threads already, and have not found a working solution.
