What goes wrong? :/

[qanda]This thread is about the Pioneer DVR-112D DVD/CD Writer Black. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Hi all.
I’ve recently bought a Xbox 360 and like many else i want to backup my games.

I’ve got a Pioneer DVR-112D with the latest firmware (1.28) and using Windows 7 RC1 7100, and I burned with the latest version of Imgburn (2.4.4.0).

During the burn the log showed some errors:

W 22:10:04 Failed to Write Sectors 2212416 - 2212447 - Reason: The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.

After I did a scan using dvdinfopro with my 112D and the result is attached.
I really don’t understand the scan at all :confused:
Why does the scan slow down to ~0.5x and is the huuuge PIF-spike a sign of a bad burn or is it just the scan that f*cked up real bad? :confused:

I’ve tested the burned disc briefly in the Xbox and it worked then, but who knows if will work 100%.

So…I wonder if someone knows what’s wrong. My 112D? The media? The scan?

Ah, the media is a white inkjet fullface printable with the mediacode MKM003 (isn’t that the mediacode that Verbatim use?) called Premium(?)

Could it be fakes?

Probably windows 7 problem. Dont trust beta versions.

Hmm…Ok, guess I could test the 112D in my HTPC that has Vista instead. I’ll get back with results later :slight_smile: Thnx

During the burn the log showed some errors…
Complex problems for burner/HDD. But for sure I don’t think it has anything to do with the OS ussed. :rolleyes: :flower:

Honestly [I]pellen,[/I] I can’t see 1 retry as a problem at all. :disagree:
Heck, with 20 retries, then you should be worried.

[I]pellen[/I] make sure your burner runs i DMA mode (Not sure how to check this under W7 but rightclicking drive in explorer and choosing -properties- maybe is the way :D)
Note also, most of nowdays main chipset doesn’t support IDE bus at all and almost all add-on controller seem to be pure crap (like JMicron).

I am also running Win 7 on another 'puter, and it is really buggy. No driver support anywhere yet that I can find.

The burner is in UDMA mode 4, so nothing wrong there :slight_smile:
Anything you can render from the scan? I really don’t understand why the scan slows down like hell in the middle of the scan and then the huge spike :confused:
Well well, gonna try the burner on Vista tomorrow :slight_smile:

So far I’ve moved my 112D to my HTPC that’s using Vista and done a scan…with the same result. Gonna try one more burn though and see if that goes better. :confused:

Meh…burned a new backup with the 112D in the HTPC. The burn went fine, but when I did a scan with dvdinfo pro the same thing happened again. 50% in the scan the speed drops to almost zero and it scans sloooowly in ~30 minutes, and then when the speed increases to normal again the huuuuuuge PIF-spike is appears.

So now i wonder if its the 112D that can’t do a proper scan or is it the burning that goes wrong?

Hi,

[QUOTE=pellen;2271244]So now i wonder if its the 112D that can’t do a proper scan or is it the burning that goes wrong?[/QUOTE]Forget scanning with Pioneer drives.
There must be a reason why Pioneer scanning support has been removed from CD/DVD Speed (on request from Pioneer) :wink:

Aaah…Well then. Guess I’ll try to find a friend with a burner that can make better scans and hope my backups continue to work otherwise :slight_smile:
