Which high speed DVD+RW is good for Pioneer 109? Or is the Pio not advisable for HS rewitable use?
Do what i do, and only stick to Verbatim media they do dvdr+/- 16x, dvd-/+ 6x/8x, dvddl -/+ 4x/8x aswell as many more but thats new fastest media.
Did u do rigorous test with RW media? oh well, i was interested in buying this Pioneer DVR-109 but information i read from the thread below discouraged me. Same 109 engine shot with FW to 110 but it can't hold its head up. i don't know how this drive stand up to RW media.I need a drive that can properly burn both cd-rw and dvd-RWs. Not just verbatim media. Any best picks?http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=146378
Fella, thanks for the info but please first read the question
I asked DVD+RW, not -RW, not +-R, just +RW Thx
Maybe this helps: http://www.videohelp.com/dvdwriters.php?DVDnameid=974&Search=Search&list=2#comments
Thanks, but only a few comments, and the only HS RW is a DVD-RW 6x, and there are no comments on that one.
Looks like no-one is using RW format with this burner? I keep finding only negative tests on RW media with Plextor and Pioneer...
I've only used TDK -RW upto 4x and had no probs with them.Normally Verbatim is the first choice.
The problem, here in the UK, is finding High Speed +RW media.
I know only one shop which sells 8x (Verbatim) DVD+RW, and it has no stock. :sad:
The fastest I use is 6x, and that is Verbatim DBD-RW.
Moomin, I can read and i gave you a answer inc more info, if you read pioneer site you would see they REC that brand anyhow.
I tell you what, i wont help you ever again how is that ?.
Yes, there are many comments on 4x and below, but none on 6x or 8x, so no high speed media comments.
How's the writing quality on your 6x DVD-RW? Media isn't the problem here, it's finding out which one the Pioneer likes
That would be fantastic, I would be much obliged indeed
Here's a QS of 97 which is pretty good.
Same overwrite test as always: 200 MB more with each cycle
Note that this Asus is a Pioneer A09.
Here the result with a NEC 3540A (to make sure you don't blame the media )
Thanks for the scans!
Is there any reason why Pioneer isn't looking into this and fix this quality through a firmware update?
Maybe the media availability (which is not good) is the problem actually. Hope this will change.
I've had good results with both Ritek and Verbatim 6x DVD-RW on my Pioneer 109.8x +RW from both Ritek and Verbatim are not supported.4x +RW from Verbatim works well (MKMA02).
Also with firmware 1.58?
With firmware 1.58:Verbatim 8x DVD+RW (MKMA03) supported at 4x maximum.Ritek 8x DVD+RW (RITEK008) "supported" at 3x maximum, although burn process can often fail and writing quality is horrible.Very disappointing!
My guess: DVD+RW support is lacking due to DVD Forum politics and Pioneer's favor of the DVD-R/RW format.
Could be a valid explanation if DVD-RW write quality didn't suck as badly on this drive as DVD+RW
