hi I recently picked up the Pioneer 8x DVD-rw DVR-107 some weeks back....After much headscratching & frustration I still have not managed to copy any DVD's....It was advertised as the best on the market!!...However I am starting to get the feeling I've been had! Anybody else had problems with this model??
When i say copy dvd's, I mean doing simple copies of say, programmes which have been copied off TV, backing up stuff which has been lying around on VHS for years...and I havent even been able to copy these!!... As for the quality of the discs, the 'Mirror' blank discs I have been using, work fine in my mates Panasonic standalone DVD- copier, but I shall try using a different brand such as verbatim before I give up!! Thanks for the help everyone
The mirror discs are the problem. They're the most incompatible discs I've come across (sorry to offend anyone but that's just my experience). I ordered a few different packs of blank dvds to see which ones are better, but as g0nvs said, the ritek and Verbatim should be the best
Re the Mirror Platinum discs. The first one I tried in the Panasonic DMRE85 worked fine. The next four discs I tried would not record. Tried on different programmes. The remainder of the 25 Mirror discs are still on the spindle (that's twenty of them - unused). I have now returned to using Verbatim 2x and 4x which work fine, as also do the pack of 100 Ritek 4x using the G04 dye, which I still have a few of left.
I use the Pioneer 107 have not updated the firmware, use Nero 6 and have had no trouble. The disks I use are datewrite yellow also Packard Bell rewritable. When you say have'nt copied any dvds, do you mean have not managed to write anything to a dvd yet?
