    hi guys listen up heres my problem
    i have recently tried burning movies to dvd-r media and all of the discs stopped at 9%
    the next day my brother wanted to burn MP3's to a cd-r or cd-rw and they all stopped suddenly in the beginning
    day after that i tried burning mp3's to a dvd-r so i could play it on a set top DVD Player and it stopped at 1%
    i dont know whats going on need help
    by the way i updated my firmware on my dvd-rw drive after all of those cd's and dvd's were FU****
    before this occured i updated my motherboard bios
    could this be the problem
    ill revert to my old bios after im done writing this

    i have solved the problem
    it was the bois' fault
    i dl it from asus for my mobo
    i reverted from a 1006 version to 1004 and it did it
    my mobo is a ASUS A8N SLI DELUXE
    somebody should contact them and tell them that the revision of the bios isnt complete
    come to think of it ill do it myself

    Man, I am good eh, one reply and sorted..................LOL

    Glad to hear you sorted it out, and also that you posted back what the problem was..............

    Must admit, it would be nice to know exactly what in the BIOS was causing the error.
    I would assume it may have something to do with the chipsets.

    You may find that with an updated BIOS, that you may require an updated chipset driver..................

    I take it that your optical devices read commercial discs just fine?

    How are you devices connected (inc Hard drives) in relation to IDE Primary master/slave configuration?

    If your burning process is failing, surely there is something that tells you it has failed, or is your PC freezing, or is windows giving you a blue screen etc..........

    i talked to people over at Pioneer over d phone and it seems the media i was using is not supported by the drive
    by the way the media i used was TDK DVD-R 4.7 GB so do not buy this type of media ur just wasting money and i apreciate ur help
    so the problem is with either Pioneer which i doubt it and TDK
    no offense i thought TDK was good but this just sucks in my opinion

    Yes I am surprised about that regarding TDK, they are reputable discs.

    I myself have a Pioneer 108, but only use Ritek discs 4x G04's, these have no problems at all.
    I haven't tried TDK, but would be worthwhile trying a different brand in line with what Pioneer have said.

    Other good brands to look at................
