    I've got a toshiba p205 s6267 and my Pioneer DVD-RW dVR-K17LF is not burning/reading anything. Itried to get a firmware for that but looks like pioneer doesn't have any (yet).

    My Dvd burner was working fine and just stopped burning correctly. I go through the steps of Fromatiing the DVD, copying the folder and then when I go to the step of Make Compatable is starts the process, then crashes and my computer reboots each time. And it did not finish the Make compatable. So the DVDs are not being read by others. I ran PC Doctor and found an Internal Error. Can this be fixed?

    My Pioneer K17LF in my Toshiba P205 lap-top does just the opposite.

    I can burn/read DVDs, but it doesn't recognize CDs. And it just started doing this recently.

    I thought it was Linux, but then I realized that also I couldn't boot from CDs either, and that happens pre-OS.

    This has happened to me once before and just recently after working on a small cd burning project the driver suddenly stopped reading any discs inserted. I looked it up on the internet the last time, but can't remeber where I went to get it fixed.

You're creating Disk images on your Hard Disc Drive.

See where your CD Burning Software stores the images of the Disk and use the appropriate option to burn them onto a blank CD.

I can't write DVD with my Pioneer DVR-107D DVD±RW

What brand of media are you using?

You are burning at 2x because that is the highest that this drive supports.

You would also want to instruct Nero to Verify by ticking the check box and either finalize disc or make it mulitsession, if your burner supports multisession DVDs
