Question about Pioneer Televison & Video

1 Answer

Comstar DVD/CD Writer, Model DVR-S111B. I have used this external burner to burn Pinnacle Studio 11 generated movies on to DVD's. Until, yesterday I have successfully burned these movies onto DVD-R disks. Suddenly, today, I get the message that the DVD-R disks are not compatible with the burner. I have also tried DVD R and DVD RW, with the same result.

    The Pinncale Studio "Set Up" page lists the DVD-R as compatible with the Pioneer burner

  • hwwolpert Jul 23, 2008

    I have used two different packages. First, another DVD-R from the package I have used successfully yesterday, the also a DVD from a new package I bought today. Same negative results.

    I have used DVD's from tow different packages (1) Thee package from which I used the DVD-R that workd yesterday and a from anew package I bought today. Same negative results

    Looks like by just "threatening" the burner by spending $10.00 with you guys scredit eneough to function again on my 10th try. Ahhhh, electronics!

    In retrospect, I think the problem may have been s with Pinnacle. Whatever, it seems to work. Thank you.

Is this a new package of discs or a package you've been using?

    I was going to say the difference between - & +, but since you've used these discs before it rules that out. I'm going to say that the optical eye has malfunctined or the reader board has failed. This is going to be a hardware issue, so, depending on the age, warranty or exchange may be the way to go with this.

    This could have been a simple glitch with the software or driver. If it happens again, try removing and reinstalling the software or driver.

I can not play my dvd on sony dvd player i get message canot play.i have a sony dvd recorder in which my laproscopic surgeries are recorded.if i play my unedited dvd on player it runs or plays very well...


My guess is the Pinnacle software isn't writing correctly. Read this from the Pinnacle support site.

Use this FAQ to troubleshoot any problems where Studio is failing during the process of burning the DVD.


  1. INSTALL THE LASTEST PATCH:

If you have Studio version 12, download the latest version here.

If you have Studio version 11, download the latest version here.


Note: Studio 11 patches will only patch a previous install of Studio 11.


If you have an older version of Studio (Studio 9, 10, or 11 etc), it is advised for you to update to the current Studio software. The current version is Studio 12. Click Here to go to the Studio 12 Upgrade page.


How to download and install a patch:

  • When downloading the patch make a note of where it is being saved to. We recommend saving the patch to the desktop.
  • Before installing the patch, make sure that you do not have any other programs running. Studio must not be running.
  • Once it is fully downloaded, double-click on the patch to begin the installation.
  • Follow any on-screen prompts to complete the installation. Reboot the computer after applying the patch.


  1. MAKE DISC SETTING, SAFE MODE BURN OPTION: In Studio, click on Setup -> Make Disc. Under the box marked Burn Options, select "Safe Mode: create disc content and then burn" by clicking on the radio button in front of the setting and then click OK. While troubleshooting this problem, always use this setting.


  1. RESTART STUDIO: Shut down Studio, then relaunch it. Try to create the DVD again using the safe mode setting above.


  1. RESTART THE COMPUTER: Try opening the door of the DVD burner. If it won't open, then shut down Studio, then restart the computer. Launch Studio and try to create the DVD again using the safe mode setting.


  1. MEDIA:


BLANK MEDIA IN THE DRIVE: Make sure that there is a blank, write-once media or rewriteable media in the DVD burner.

TYPE OF DVD: Make sure that your DVD burner supports the media you use. As for any problem with burning a DVD, we recommend customer use rewriteable media to reduce the number of wasted DVDs when they have to troubleshoot a failure while burning DVDs. In this case, if you have only used rewriteable media, (RW) we would also recommend trying to use a write once (-/+ R) DVD and erasing the RW media.

BRAND OF DVD: Pinnacle recommends using a name brand of DVD, i.e. Sony, Apple, Memorex, etc. Also we recommend trying a DVD from a different manufacturer to see if the problem is related to the brand of DVD that is being used.

NOTE: Check with the following site to find information on the media being used.


http://www.videohelp.com/dvdmedia


  1. LOWER THE WRITE SPEED: In the Make Disc settings try lowering the Write Speed to the lowest possible setting.


  1. GET THE LATEST FIRMWARE: Ensure that the DVD burner being used has the latest firmware update from the burner manufacturer.


  1. CHECK DISC SPEED: Make sure that the disc media speed (printed on the media or on the media box) is compatible with the DVD burner. Some burners may not work with media that has a higher maximum supported burn speed. For example, if the burner being used supports 4x disc media, do not use 16x disc media.


  1. DELETE AUXILIARY FILES: Try deleting the Auxiliary Files for the current project. To do this, go to File -> Delete Auxiliary Files and select "Delete auxiliary files for current project." Press OK and try to re-render and burn the project.


  1. ALWAYS RE-ENCODE: Go to the Make Disc settings and check the box called "Always re-encode entire movie".


  1. SAFE MODE: Try burning with the safe mode option selected. To do this, go to the Make Disc settings. In the Burn options are select the option called: "Safe mode: create disc content and then burn.". This step does not apply if you are using Studio 12 since this is the default burn method.


  1. CREATE A DISC IMAGE: In Studio, click on Setup -> Make Disc. Under the box marked Burn Options, select "Create disc content but don't burn" by clicking on the radio button in front of the setting and then click OK. Then click the Create disc button in the Make Movie section to begin the image creation process.

    If the image is not created, it is likely that the problem is a Render problem rather than a burn problem. Click Here to see the FAQ on Render problems.

    If the disc image file is created successfully, burn the disc from the new disc image by selecting "Burn from previously created disc content" in Burn Options.

    NOTE: When troubleshooting all burn or playback issues, it is recommended to use rewritable media to avoid wasting discs.

I get an error message to use a blank or erasable DVD


I would try simply copying one of the already completed discs using a stable and well known burning program like Nero. Programs like Pinnacle can be very temperamental when exporting their projects to disc.

Will this burner work on dual layer discs?


Pioneer has released Firmware for the DVR-107D DVD Writer and DVR-A07XLA & XLB DVD Writer. This release # is 1.18.
http://www.pioneeraus.com.au/computer/firmware.html
(a ZIP file download, but uncompresses to an .EXE, as does theflashman.rpc1.org site download. I can't uncompress the EXEs with Stuffit (standard) Expander v7.0x here, but Scott said he used version 8.0.2 )
Looks like we are getting closer to Dual Layer Support:
(although some have flashed NEC ND-2500A drives to DL 2510 model firmware, I doubt that Pioneer will release an official firmware update for the 107D to add dual-layer burning. Like other mfrs, I suspect they'll sell a new drive model with DL burning support.)
    For Models DVR-107D FW Version 1.18
  • DVD-R Writability Improvement
  • +R Writability Improvement
  • DVD-RAM Playability Improvement
  • CD Playability Improvement
  • +R DL DoubleLayer Playback Implemented (NOT Record)

    For Models DVR-A07XLA, DVR-A07XLB, DVR-107AXL & DVR-107BXL FW Version 1.18
  • DVD-R Writability Improvement
  • +R Writability Improvement
  • DVD-RAM Playability Improvement
  • CD Playability Improvement
  • +R DL DoubleLayer Playback Implemented (NOT Record)

I need driver for the dvd writer DVR-S111B , Comstar make. Where can i finf it


Which operating System are you using?Optical drives never require a driver other than what is included with Windows XP. Windows detects the drive the moment you switchon after connecting and configuring in BIOS.You may need a firmware or recording software update.I can only suggest you make sure your drive firmware is latest offered by the manufacturer/vendor and to insure your recording software is update and to make sure your recording media is quality rated or type/brand suggested by manufacturer.
Please rate me appropriately if you are satisfied with my answer,in case, if you want any clarification please get back to me.

Comstar featuring Pioneer external DVD/cd Writer USB 2.0 8xdual/double layer


Use the freeware Belarc Explorer to find out what CD-DVD burning program you have, like NTI, Roxio, or others, then open it, and their help programs MAY be clear enough to tell you what to do. They are written by Chinese for Koreans or Japanese, and translated into English. You don't need a manual for your hardware. It may not even be detected without a non-microsoft burning program.
