Pioneer DVr-109 writing Problem

Q: Pioneer DVr-109 writing Problem

Hi folks

I have a horrible problem which is doing my tit in.

I just brought a pioneer dvr109. In the Uk this drive has received good reviews so i decided to buy it. I brought an oem version of dabs.com.

Now when i received this it had a fireware already on which was version 1.19 and i looked on pioneers website and there was another firmware update which was 1.40 which was only released in march. so i updated and it hasnt seemed to have sorted problem out.

The DVD rewriting side seems to be fine.

but for cd-rs i am having problems.

I use TDK cdr80 disks which can burn up to 52X. now i know my drive will only burn up to 40X which is fine, but when i used nero, which is version. I can only burn at 4X.

does anyone know why this is.

I thought problems like these sorted them selves out with firmware, but i dont think it has.

I have tried the same brand but with numerious disks and have had no luck. b4 i did the update i was also using infiniti cdr-80 disks on a spindle. and these would burn up to 32X. but since the update these will only burn at 4X.

can anyone help, is there any issue with this drive, is it my nero version?

any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hello Everyone,
Right out of box my Asus had powering up problem. Sent it to Asus and they fixed it and said they had to change the HD. I wasnt a person to use CDs on daily basis..after almost a year to my surprise when i wanted to use a DVD it just dont even recognise,
Asus happily blamed it on me saying "i should have reported it right then". So i have tried uninstall of driver and reinstall.
--EDIT: On devicemgr..driver prop it says its config is incomplete or damaged. error code 19.--

I found the below info for a Win7...will same procedure work for Win8...???? Appreciate.
To Solve this problem, you need to reinstall the Cd Drive by doing the following

1. Go into device manager, right click on cd drive and select uninstall
2. In start type run and execute it

3. type regedit and execute it

4. navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

5. delete the upper and lower filters - if one of them isn't they're don't worry - just delete which
ever is.

6. close registry and restart computer immediately.

I just bought and installed the dvd drive for my dell dimension 8100 desktop. When I put a cd in it wont load so I open window explorer to click on the drive it says only the read process was complete. But whats weird is my laptop wireless dies everytime i put a cd in.

The laptop and desktop aint connected I even unplugged the usb port to the router from the desktop. But the real problem is why cant I update my firmware.

A:Pioneer dvr-115 problem

The CD Disc that you are putting in the Desktop DVD drive, is that a blank or copied disc ?
Have you tried putting in an original bought disc (ie a movie) to test it ?

The DVD Drive sounds as though it may be not set up correctly.
Is it Sata?
Is it ATA?
Is it USB?
Are there other drives (CD/DVD) already installed (making two drives)
Is your Hard Drive Sata or ATA?

The laptop wireless issue, sounds as though it is depedant on the Desktop to be operational.

The laptop bios, I haven't worked out (requires more info ie Specs; model)
But you really need to be confident in doing this
Have you got the correct bios file?
Have you read all the updates proceedure?
Are you aware that USB devices should be out?

Really there's a lot in what you asked.
I wonder if it would be better to try to repair one at a time (to avoid confusion -both my end and yours)

Please confirm all of the above
Also all your system specs
Your Windows version
Your network configuration.

Or maybe just start again with one fault

Hi, I purchased a used DVR-109( used for two weeks) from eBay. I have two drives on my computer, the first one is (CD rom, That came originally with my computer), The second one is (CD writer That installed later). Then When I received the PIONEER DVR-109, I had to give up the first one (CD rom)that was set as MASTER and replace it with the PIONEER( I set as master as well) But never worked, The device manager in my system shows that the pioneer is working properly, But it's not working at all, My PC recognized the pioneer But the mouse goes slow and gets stuck every time I insert the installation CD to install the features and drivers. Even though I inserted the CD in the other drive(CD writer) just to read the contents and try to install it, But it freezes as well. It only happens with that (pioneer INSTALLER CD) but when I use another CD( any media or software cd's for example) it works fine on the CD rom But not on the PIONEER . Please help me. My pc informations are :

Packard bell
Pentuim 3
Win XP ver 2002/ service pack-2
601 MHz
256 MB RAM
I have 4 GB available in my hard drive

Greetings from Scotland.....

Need help from you wizards out there....Have been getting the same error message every time I try to burn a DVD. This has only just started because previously everything was fine.
The message reads: E80041930: Track Writer error-Wait Failed(T7123) Now this comes up after only 14% of the burn has been completed. So far I have managed to make a dozen or so nice beer coasters, but now it's no longer funny. Anybody come across this problem?...Have foned the Pioneer help line, but they were as much use as an ashtry on a motorbike. Have downloaded the latest firmware from their website for the DVD-RW but this has done nothing. Everything checks out in Control Panel/Hardware/IDE etc...Running out of ideas, do you think I should turn my DVD-RW into a play centre for hamsters? or is there still hope??...All help appreciated...Cheers

I am using DVD+R (as I always do) But not only does it burn slow it doesn't read after I get the "Burn Successful" message.

I contacted Sony and they couldn't figure it out, they said to do a system restore.....I did as far back as it would let me and problem still exist.

Checked Device Manager/IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers and DMA is enabled on all channels. and updated all drivers (none needed an update)

Burns and reads CD-r OK!

I'm having a problem with my pioneer dvr-s19lbk with windows 7 ultimate 32bit.
The drive shows up fine in my bios, but windows 7 has a problem with it. In my computer it shows up as dvd-rw, but in device manager it shows as a cd-rom. When i put a disk in the drive the autoplay comes up as normal, but when insert a blank disk nothing happens, no autoplay. For some reason its not seeing any blank media and i am unable to burn any disks, even though nero shows the drive with its full model number and firmware version.
However many times i try to update the driver i just get the same message : (Windows had deternimed the driver software for your device is up to date).

I have searched online and have found the latest firmware from pioneer, but as my drive is the latest model it already has this version and there does not seem to be any driver for this device even though it says on the box that its compatible with Windows 7 and i don't understand why its not working.

Any ideas will be most welcome

Hey everyone.

I am having a problem with my Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-107D. It is a CD-ROM/R and DVD-ROM/R/RW.

The device seems to have no problem recognizing regular CDs or burning regular CDs. But yesterday I have encountered a problem with DVDs. I tried to burn a DVD image of Windows Vista (it is all legal. I go to Heald College and Microsoft gives us free software to download and burn, its a student-license-key) and the burner would burn everything fine. Then, when I insert the completed DVD back into the drive, my computer would not recognize the DVD. In My_Computer the drive is shown as: CD Drive. Once I open the tray, it changes to "DVD-RW Drive". Once I insert the DVD back into the computer, the name of DVD drive in my computer changes back to "CD Drive".

Funny, when I insert the same burned DVD into my laptop DVD drive it understands the DVD fine. I tried burning the image on DVD -R and DVD +R disks and both of them burn fine but then neither DVD -R or DVD +R are understood when I insert it back into computer. I burned both DVDs with Alcohol 120%. My Pioneer DVD-RW drive has all the latest firmware installed and showes no problems in Device Manager.

I suspect the problem with the IDE Channels on which my DVD-RW drive is connected, but I want to be sure, before I start unscrewing my tower since its pretty big and packed up inside - too much trouble.

Can someone reccomend me something, or is the drive possibly has lived its life?

Thank you guys ... Read more

This never happened before until now, but when i turn to burn data with my dvd writer, its going all crazy. My buffer level jumps from 30 to 100 percent constantly. I cant cancel the burning process. The time prediction when the dvd is gonna be done is way off.

I am trying to back of day of defeat: source so later on, when i format my pc, i dont have to download it again. Its a 3 gig+ file. Thats the great thing about steam, if you download games through them, they give u the option to back it up unlike EA downloader.

The program i am using is Nero, the defualt version which came with my burner. Also, i am guessing is star force which was installed when i installed Rainbow:Six Lockdown because before that, i never had this problem. And the speed i am burning at is only at 4x using the same exact model of dvd+r i did before. This speed gave me no problem before. My pc spec are listed below.

Good Morning Mayor Quimby, I suggest you obtain "Smartcop Free Antivirus" from
Download it and unpack it to a folder on your C: drive. (eg C:\Smartcop)
This program is a simple little stand-alone no update kind of scanner.
(A bit like a junkyard dog!!)
Switch off your normal antivirus monitor program.
You can then run smartcop by double-clicking the black icon in that folder and completely scan you machine.
It will detect viral signatures, examine them and their addresses and if possible (if they are not vital files) delete them dependent on your command. (Auto delete is a bit vicious!)
Most are usually in temp folders, it is also common to find your A/V system will be infected and compromised. (Smartcop does not appear to have this problem)
Make notes of any virus and addresses detected.

Now reboot and try rerunning smartcop with your normal A/V monitoring (not scanning) so as smartcop examines the machine, the activity monitoring operation of the other A/V will likely detect virus signatures, examine these and act appropriately.

Generally you can keep rebooting and re-scanning and find more with each run.
Sometimes running in "safemode" helps with problem removal and sometimes a different access mode is needed to actually delete and replace certain files.

I am most interested to see what you find!! (Please advise results)
I am amazed at the stuff this method detects, I may be wrong in your case but I doubt ... Read more

Hello everyone,

I have been having this problem since the day I bought it but; everytime that I try to burn an audio CD, data CD, DVD, etc. it will burn for several minutes, then a program error will come up that usually says, "error burning disc, please try another setting, media type, or update drivers." ... For example, I tried to burn 10 music files onto a CD and after the 5th one, it said, "burn failed", and when I use a video editing program and burn my movie to a DVD, it alway burns between 5 - 10 minutes, then I recieve the same error.

I called Pioneer and they said they don't make drivers for any of their products, they all rely on Win XP drivers. Does anyone know what the problem could be??? I am using Memorex CD-R and Memorex DVD-Rs to burn with.

A:Nero & Pioneer 109 recognition problem.

How old is the computer? How old is the optical drive.
Be sure your jumpers are set properly on the back of your optical drive.
Optical drives have a very high failure rate, often lasting less than a year.
Lasers burn out like light bulbs. Burning and reading lasers are different components of the drive, and either can get out of alignment... so that the laser cannot read the tracks in the correct order.
You can also have a drive which has had the belt slip off, or the idler wheel is stuck.
Easiest fix is to buy a new drive. You can buy DVD burners online from any of the major companies for under $30 plus shipping, then install it yourself. Better build drives are Plextor and Yamaha, but they will cost you four to six times more than the good enough LG, Lite-On, and Samsung. Avoid HLDS and low priced HP or low priced Sony.

Up till recently, I've only played ONE "all region enabled" DVD on my Pioneer 106 DVD drive. Up till then, no other DVD was played in the drive, nor did I upgrade the firm-ware/flashed it to make it region free etc. The drive's the way it came. The s/w I used to use to view that DVD was WinDVD 2.x(?)

Last week, I got another DVD, a Region 1, and I upgraded to WinDVD 4.0. The Region 1 DVD plays without problem, but the all region enabled one doesn't anymore! WinDVD crashes when I load it (causes an error with some .dll file) and PowerDVD says the disc is dirty or unreadable. I dont think that's the case as I've not loaned the disc out to anyone, it's always stored in its case and a physical inspection of the disc shows no serious scratches etc. Viewing the contents of the DVD in Windows Explorer isn't a problem either - i can see the directories and files.

The drive is installed as a master on the secondary IDE port, a configuration which worked till recently. WinME's my OS.

Anyone know what's up? Did playing the Region 1 DVD lock my drive or something?

I run a Pentium 4 with XP Professional. It came with Roxio Easy CD Creator 5.2 installed but I've never got around to using Roxio. I can play music CDs OK via Windows Media Player.

Realised I should be backing up my HD and tried to backup onto a CD-R with no joy so tried a CD-RW - no joy. Went and bought new CD-RWs in case the disks were at fault but still no joy.

Eventually found out that the Roxio version that I have can't be used on XP Professional so downloaded Nero 7 Demo. Still getting same messages.

When I try to copy I get a couple of different messages:
"Buffer underrun protection activated" and shows Type of disk in recorder: Empty
"Waiting for disc - Please insert disk to write to"

And previously got "Unrecognised data" and "insufficient space left" but it's a blank disk.

I've tried using Nero to do a quick erase but the Erase option isn't highlighted so can't.

I'm obviously missing something really basic ... anyone any ideas? I've attached aerror log in case this is of help.

Also, do I have to format all new disks before using and, if so, anyone know how to format using Nero 7 demo?

A:Problem Writing To Cd-r Or Cd-rw

Hi Denise. Roxio and Nero don't like to cohabitate (I found out the hard way). Uninstall both of them for the time being.Download and run XP_CD-DVD-Fix.zip and unzip the contents. Run the EXE file. Reinstall Nero. If this doesn't work you could try using an inexpensive optical drive cleaning disk available at large retailers and computer shops.---------------------------There are 2 ways to store data on a RW disk. The first way is to burn to it like it is a CD-R and then erase the whole disc to reuse it. The other way is to use Nero's InCD driver to format the CD-RW. This will allow you to treat the disc as a 500MB removeable disc in which you can add and remove files and folders in Explorer as if it was a gigantic floppy. Only computers running InCD will be able to write to the disc.

I have a Blue-Ray Drive on my HP-G70 120. I am running on WIndows 7. Recently, my blue-ray drive has been disturbing a lot. I wrote to CDs and DVDs before, and it worked fine. Also, I can read from the discs, so I dont think there is a problem with the laser, rather I suspect some problem with the software.

My Problems are:
Clicking on the drive icon says its a blank disc, though the disc is not.
While at other times, ejecting the drive from windows or from the button says "An error occurred while ejecting BD-ROM". At other times it ejects fine.
I burned some files onto a CD that already had 80MB written on it, using BurnAware. Now, after burning, only the previous (80MB) are present there, but no sign of the newest write. Also, it shows "0 bytes free of 80MB" when clicking properties on the drive icon in Windows Explorer.

So How do I fix these problems?

Thank You

It is XP SP3 that is causing your problem. I have a Sony DRU 710A that stopped working after I installed XP SP3. It would not recognize any blank DVD media with Roxio or Nero. I pulled the drive out and put it in another machine that only had XP SP1 installed. The drive worked great. I then installed SP3 and the drive quit working again. I then uninstalled SP3 and the drive started working again. Microsoft needs to fix this problem. I hope someone can put enough pressure on them to fix this issue.

That is a direct link for drivers for your FN keys. Try it and let me know how it works.

How long has the problem been occurring? If it just started happening, you may try to do a system restore. Make sure all of your personal files are backed up just in case of an error.

I am using DVD+R discs and have never had a problem in the past.

I have installed Window 8 and then Microsoft Office Home & Business 2013 in my laptop (Samsung). When I do the typing (whatever writing on email, Word, Excel or Powerpoint), the cursor move up or down randomly. Sometimes, the words will automatically be changed to capital letter. It is so hard to finish one paragraph!

I had tried not to use wireless mouse but the problem still exists. Would anyone please help me how to solve this problem?

Many thanks

XP CD writing wizard writes files to CD. I get the message 'Your files have been successfully written to the CD'. The tray opens upon completion. When I close everything out an try to read CD contents from Windows Explorer it shows empty! I have tried the trouble shooter, I have uninstalled and reinstalled the CD driver all to no avail. When I burn files to the CD from Nero Express everything works fine. After this burn I can read the file OK from Windows Explorer. What gives? Am at my wits end. Any help appreciated.

Then, why can't you use Nero Express? Sometimes. when more than one burning software is installed, their drivers conflict.

Have you installed any other CD or DVD software? Have you uninstalled any?

Hi everyone, I have an HP compaq nx6110 laptop. I have just recently installed Windows 7 on it and everything works fine so far but when i try to write files to a cd with windows dvd maker that comes with windows 7, it tells me that "The video card installed on this computer doesn't meet the minimum system requirements for Windows DVD Maker." What should I do? I have an Intel 915GM. Thanks for your help in advance. Glad to have a Windows 7 forum.

There's no video driver for Vista or 7 so it seems you're out of luck.

This is a long story...

I had a new Teac CDW and an old HP CDW on my machine.
Both were working perfect with Nero 5.5.
Until I realize that my new Teac W552E had a manufacturing defect. So I removed it and sent it back to the service center.

Now I'm left with the old one. At first the computer said ATAPI uncampatible at every reboot. I connected to the secondary master cable, in place of the new Teac drive, then I changed the BIOS to set secondary master (the HP drive) to Auto and Non-installed to secondary master where the old HP was previousely.
Now, I don't have this Atapi warning.

My HP drive is detected and is able to read CD-R(W) from any application, including WExplorer and Nero.

When I started to burn to CDR-W, Nero shows "HP drive time out" (or something like that), then Nero freeze.
It doesn't seem to write anymore...

I don't think it's a problem of software since it's exactely the same system/config/installation as 2 weeks ago when I removed the new Teac drive.

I'd rather think that it can be a BIOS or a cable connection problem or that the HP drive is dead...

Any suggestion?
