The product is not listed in the dropdown menu, I have the DVS-R47A/U Pioneer DVD-R Recordable Discs
Hi, I’m new around here. I just joined today because I’m having trouble with getting an image of yellow dog 6.1 linux to burn to my Pioneer Blank DVD 120min/4.7GB in order for me to install it on my PS3 60GB CECHA01.
First of all, my drive is the Philips DVD+RW DVD8631. It works and has worked with other types of blank media (Memorex and Sony) but for some reason I can not get it to burn to this particular brand of disc no matter what program I use. I usually use Sonic Record Now but I don’t really like it so I got BurnDeep.
Just today, I accidentally messed up the burn of that yellow dog 6.1 image to my Sony DVD-R and all I had left was a box of these Pioneer DVD-R DVS-R47A/U. However, I can not get the stupid computer to burn to these types of discs. I have tried it on two different blank discs and no luck. I used Quikeee’s BQFlasher to update my drive to the latest GD30 firmware, but still no dice.
No matter what program I use, it starts the burning process but seconds later with no progress my comp spits back out the blank DVD-R and gives me an error message. On DeepBurner specifically it says WRITER ERROR [ILLEGAL REQUEST (CANNOT WRITE MEDIUM-INCOMPATIBLE FORMAT)]
I could easily fix this by buying different discs but I don’t know when the next time I can get to the store is because my parents won’t let me get my drivers liscense. -_-
Any and all help is appreciated. Please halp me!
