I am tearing my hair out
I have a Pioneer 108 installed in my PC and I am consistently getting strange behaviour.
The issues are twofold:
Whenever I burn a CD or DVD I get verification errors on files. These can be either the normal Nero “verification of file x failed” but also recently I have been getting the red “Data Verification failed because Sector ##### contained data different from the source”. I have no idea why this is occurring.
If I try and burn a suite of MP3’s as a genuine audio CD then I get the same red “Data Verification failed because Sector ##### contained data different from the source” error BUT I get ridiculous read speeds like in the 200x level and its clear from the DVD Drive light that the disc is not being accessed.
Errors occur even if Nero is the only app.
P4 2.6Ghz, 1GB Ram, Gigabyte SINXP139 Mobo
108 is Master on IDE2 (no other devices) and DMA is on, firmware is v1.14
Software is Nero 18.104.22.168
Blanks are Ritek G04’s and G05’s, Datawrite Cds and DVD-RW’s.
OS is XP inc SP2.
Please help it’s really troubling.
