    Default Pioneer A06/106 not finishing discs....

    I have just bought a new Pioneer A06/106 and have a problem that is bugging me..

    the first 2 discs I have burnt have been fine but since then (apart from one occasion)...

    Whenever I write a DVD, (so far ive used CloneDVD V1.3.11.2, DVDShrink 3, & DVDDecrypter V3.1.5.0 ) all my discs are getting stuck in the DVDwriter when it goes to finalise the disc.

    It write the disc fine but once it gets to the final stage it stays there and doesnt move at all! the only way I can get my disc out is to manually shut down and reboot. This is obviously becoming unbearable! so i need to fix it!!!

    this has happened to about 10 discs.

    The media ID of the recordables I have is: INFOSMART01
    It is a: PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-106D firmware V 1.07
    I have used all the programs stated above and have been getting problems with them all.

    Please if anyone has had the same problem let me know or if anyone knows whats going wrong!

    thanks in advance!

    Yeh, I used to get this problem.
    I have the same drive and firmware as you and have noticed others with the same problem.

    I can't really tell you the solution, but I think it has somthing to do with Burning software/burner incompatibility.

    I use to get this problem where the disk would burn right till the end and finalize in NERO, but the program would just keep going and not finish, the only way to end was to shut down.

    I updated to the new version of NERO and not had this problem since.
    I would also check your config too, are your drives set for DMA?

    Direct Memory Access - in Windows 98 under Device Manager, you should find a DMA tick box in the properties menu for your hard drive(s) Not sure where it is in XP as I'm at work on the old steam model at the mo
    This isn't a learning curve ... this is b****y mountaineering!

    You will find it under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers then click properties for the channel your drive is connected to.

    To check DMA in XP:

    Go To,
    Start
    Controll Panel
    System
    Hardware
    Device Manager
    IDE/ATAPI Controllers
    Double click IDE channel (Check em all if not sure)
    Advanced Settings
    Set Transfer maode to DMA or Ultra DMA mode 2 if applicable.

    I had the same thing on that drive with those disks. Finaly figured out that the end of disk is really roapy on the edge. I dropped my target size to 4.15gb- 4.2gb, and it sorted that out. If you go for maximum target size or near target size, the end is so poor that the brurner runs out of lead out space but cannot recover, so it gets stuck in a loop and you have to reboot to get your disk back. Even then I bet your playback is awfull in the last 10-15 mins of the film, if it plays at all towards the end!
    Solution= stear clear of 54p disks if you want a full backup! Ritek G04 and Goallover (G04 type) are 70p now!!!

    I've had mixed results with Bulkpaq. Last lot I had were the white printed generation 4, 4x DVD+R. I could only get a decent burn at 2x, running at 4x would result in constant jumping and freezing during playback. At the moment I am going with a new disk called Goallover (G04 type) 4x -r. I have went through about 70 of these so far with no coasters and they burn right up to the edge. Brilliant at 70p. You can get them at Digital Promo.

    Hi, everybody

    If you will test your discs with DVDDecrypter before burning (by placing a blank disc in writer, starting DVDDecrypter and setting to ISO Write, DVDDecrypter will tell you how much space the disc actually has, manufacturer, etc.). You don't even have to have a movie ready to burn to do this. This program has even been used to identify some discs sold as Memorex and actually of another brand, big stink about that.

    DVDDecrypter is a ripper/burner and will burn dvdshrink files with IMG Classic v. 0.91.1 assistance, or rip a D-5 in Iso mode and then burn that iso movie, very good burns.
    Rig :

    P - 4 @ 1.7 Ghz, 768 mb (133) Ram, Intel 845 chipset M'board, Seagate 60 Gig., 5400 rpsm hdd, Maxtor 40 Gig. 7200 rpm hdd, Hauppauge 880 pvr card, etc.. O.S. - XP Home Edition.

    Default Nero recode

    Hello I am a newbie.

    :.)

    I have been using Nero recode and burning my disks with my 107 @ 8 speed with the hacked firmware.

    And as other folk on hear have mentioned I use Goallover printable but I have been buying them for ú0.48 pence per disk from http://www.nexus22.com

    As any one else used nero, I have used shrink but I dont like the newer versions.

    :.(
