8X -R on Pioneer 107

Postby ryus on Tue Nov 30, 2004 2:06 pm

Which 8X DVD-R can the Pioneer 107 burn at 8X?

The reason I ask is because the Prodisc 8X -R can only burn at 4X on the 107 with latest firmware.

Who here has burnt 8X DVD-R with the 107 without using the hacked firmware?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks alot guys. I was hoping that the 1.21 firmware would burn Prodisc SO4 at 8X since I'm a huge fan of Prodisc's price/quality.

Pioneer, please release a newer firmware to remedy this!!!!

yeah i guess i must have been using the patched firmware when i had my 107 at the time i was burning g04's

even with my 108 the s04 would only be rated at 4x i think, its been awhile since i used the s04

im now using only TY for my burns

Heh... that's why I never buy Prodisc. ....well, no that isn't why I never buy Prodisc, but the kind of words I'd have to use while describing my reasons would probably need to be 'bleeped' out anyways :P

I don't use Ritek either actually... not anymore. Only Optodisc and Taiyo Yuden. Optodisc for 99% of my stuff, and Taiyo Yuden for stuff that's important.
