First of all, hello eveybody. This is my first day in this community
I am owner of a Pioneer DVR-108, seven month old, and I've been using it, with the firmware 1.14, to burn succesfully original Taiyo Yuden Silver Thermal Laquer DVD-R 8x media with excellents results.
When I had no more TY8x DVD-R media, I bought some DVD+R and DVD-R media (also with Taiyo Yuden dye: FujiFilm made in Japan [+R], and original TY Inkjet Fullface Printable ones [both +R and -R]).
In the meantime I received those new ones, I made some enhacements in the computer:
1) Updated Nero Burning ROM from 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168
2) Updated Pioneer 108 firmware from 1.14 to 1.19 (officials)
3) Upgraded the memory system (from 192MB SDRAM PC100 non-ECC non-registered to 768MB PC100 ECC Registered) :bigsmile:
4) Updated DVDInfoPro from 3.55 to 3.63 and its database.
Today, I've burnt 3 FujiFilm DVD+R8x (MID: YUDEN000T02) and one original Taiyo Yuden DVD+R 8x (MID: YUDEN000T02).
Then I've checked them with DVDInfoPro and the results have been horribles, the worst I've ever seen (exceptuating a yellow Bullpaq):
PI average: 234 / 170 / 568 :eek:
PO average: 391 / 34 / 442
I cannot belive those results :sad: . Let's say they have no CRC errors, and seems to play nice in the DVD home-TV player, but the peaks are too very high (even more than 1000 both in PI and PO!!). I am not confident on these disk to have a long reading life.
Could you give me a help and tell me where should I check first to fix this, please?
P.D. Previous test with the original TY DVD-R media gave an average of 10 to 20 PI and 0 to 5 PO.
I do not post the pictures of the test quality as I think they are not reliable, and because with so bad results, you can imagine how really bad they are.
