Question about Pioneer DVR-610 (DVR610B5PK) DVD RW Dual Layer Burner
I have a Pioneer DVR-610 DVD+-RW Dual Layer Burner. Recently I noticed that my DVD burner will no longer read burnt DVDs. Although it will read commercial DVDs and CD's. I have tested the DVDs that it will not read on another computer and they are readable on that DVD drive but not mine. Also some of these disks used to be readable on my drive before this problem started. I have upated the firmware from 1.21 to 1.41 and this did not solve the problem. I suspect that starforce copy protection might be the issue because I installed a game with it not too long ago. I did run the starforce removal tool and the drive still doesn't work. I have heard others say that starforce perminantly changed their drives firmware. I am running Windows XP x64 and Windows XP Pro. I intalled the starforce copy protection enabled game on both partitions but the removal tool only found starforce on my XP pro partition. Could this be the issue?
Yes your quite correct, starforce once installed can damage the fimware more so for multi writers, a common problem will be slower recording speeds. It can even damage the hardware itself and render the writer totally useless. If your getting to that stage, for the price of a new writer, it's not worth the worry, replacing the drive is the only answer.
