    Can you help me I just bought a Pioneer 108 +- dual layer burner... Its external and connected by USB2.

    I can dvd decrypt or shrink files on the HD, but I cant burn them onto blank dvds... I have installed all the drivers and still nothing, Good spec of a laptop and my last bruner worked fine.

    I get the msg..

    Writing to DVD video was not sucessful. DVD write error (writedvd 9). A dvd write error occeured, prob caused by a bad medium. PLease replace medium and try again .....

    by looking at your eror, it says write dvd9, are you using dual layer dvds? if not you will probably need to change to dvd5 for it to work properly.
