Okay, I'm confused. I've been burning about 5 mos with a Pioneer DVR-111D using Sony DVD+R and have had no problems. I usually use AnyDVD, then DVD shrink, then DVD decrypter. But now, all of a sudden when I try to burn using DVD decrpyter it just says writing lead in, and does nothing, it can sit for hours, won't do a thing. I just have to cancel it. I've tried movies that burnt okay before and the same thing. I went looking for firmware but then it said if you download the wrong one it'll mess everything up, so I got a little leary. Any ideas, sorry I'm not too savvy at all this yet.
