Question about Pioneer DVR-107D DVD±RW Burner

3 Answers

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

I need your help.
I bought a SONY VAIO VGN-FZ290EGS notebook.
I can read, but I can't write CD/DVD.
When I am trying to write some data with NERO , I don't know why, but burning speed is only 2x ( is it not strange???? because DVD+R Write is 8x max, and for DVD+R is 1x to 16x).
However, the process of burning goes normally, and in the end Nero says that the process was finished successfully.
After that, I take DVD and again put it in DVD ROM. The DVD was spoiled. And the computer doesn't recognize the DVD.
I don't know what to do.
Please help me.
Regards, Samvel

    Hi worldvet,

    Thanks for your response.

    I used FujiFilm DVD+R 16x blank media.

    I already tried the Nero's option "verify" but it doesn't helped.

    Hi Worldvet.

    Thanks a lot for your response.

    I'm using Nero Ultra

    Nero burning temp file location is "C:\Users\Samvel\AppData\Local\Temp\"

    I would like to note the following:
    a. today the same version of Nero I installed to a Notebooks of my friends (HP and Toshiba, the first one is VISTA, and the second one - Windows XP) . I burned DVD on there computers with my FujiFilm DVDs. No any issue.
    b.I also tried to write a DVD with Roxio Easy Media Creator 10. But I got the same issue.

    I don't understand, is it hardware or software issue.
    It seems, that is a driver problem.

Download install and run Imgburn_2.4.1.0 as a TEST.
My Drive did not work with Nero 7 but was fine with the latter.

This proves Nero can be quirky with some drives.

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

    This is going to be a series of question responses between us to get to the bottom of the problem. Its the trouble with troubleshooting via email responses. If I were in your home at your computer we could get this done in less than an hour.
    So please don't rate this, until I give you a final verdict and or we succeed. It is possible you have a bad burner, but we have to rule a lot out before you can request a replacement and be knowledgeable in your request as to why.

    Have you used Power Burn in the Nero burn settings?

    Where have you set the Nero burning temp file location in the setup pages of Nero?

    Which version of Nero are you using? Drop the help menu down and select About

    Have you downloaded and applied any Nero released patches yet?

Most common cause of this is a dirty lens. Try cleaning with a good quality dvd cleaner. This should fix the problem. Hope this helps.
