    I have the most annoying problem with my pioneer 107 drive.

    After a restart it will read any disc properly as it should, but after i eject that disc and insert a new one, when I navigate my way back to the e: drive i shows the info for the old disc, obviously when i try to copy a file an error message apprears.

    i have flashed the drive will all the official firmwares and un-official firmware.

    tried new ide cable, different master slave combo, device on its own. to no avail.

    XP Pro + windows service pack 2

    (seems to only do this on dvdr recorded on my old sony dvdr (which was shite) DW-U14a (also flashed)

    i am now certain the problem arises when you flash the drive. as i earlier said i changed the reg, restarted with the original pioneer firmware all ok.

    then flashed with patched .118 and same problem. I went back to the reg and my entry (1) had been deleted. I simply inserted the 1 again restarted and bingo. all back to normal with excellent burn and rip speeds of patched .118. brilliant

    ta very much

    I have the same "problem", but I'd personally prefer to have autorun disabled if it means saving the risk of protected audio cds from installing things behind my back and having rental dvds try to install players. I've also got DVDIdle, so it lets me eject DVDs while they're still playing, confused a few people doing that when they ask what I'm watching. That trick aside, its an excellent program just thought I'd share that one.
