Question about Pioneer DVR-S111B DVD RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

Stopped burning I have a Compaq computer with 512 mb or ram. I have been useing this DVD burner for awhile now and it was working perfectly. It suddenly stopped burning the files that I wanted to put on the disk. I have tried several different types of DVD+r and DVD-r disk. I have tried several different types of software, tried Nero, DVDFlick, and also Media Center. Is there a problem with the DVD burner itself or am I doing something wrong?

DVDS burn failure


Mmmm... to hard to know what is happening, as many things in computers that problem could come from many sides.

First advice: USE NERO (JUST NERO) its the best for windows.
You can get NERO for free on the net, at least just a trial version.

Second advive: make sure you have at least 512 MB of RAM
enough free HD space at lease 5 giga for a DVD.

Do this first to ensure your problem is not the software youre using... I will assume at this point that your operative system is running perfectly, because if not, your problem is just there.
And I will also assume your CD/DVD unit is 100% OK... otherwise nothing will help.

Install NERO and try burning at a low speed (8 maximum)

if you have problems... I would need much more information on this matter and you might need to spend money in a new recorder.

System requirements for using LG GSA 4163B to burn DL discs


512 should be enough. As long as you have enough hard drive space windows should take care of creating virtual memory with the swap file.

I see no reason at all why 512 wouldn't be enough ram to burn a disc. If you are running out of memory take a look at what programs are running on the system and try to close some of the larger ones.

My Sony burns cds but doesn't burn dvds!!!


It may be a dual laser type burner and the dvd laser has faulted, you can try using a cd/dvd cleaner to clean the laser. Otherwise try:- Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete. Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers
