Does anyone here have a Pioneeer A07 or a Pioneer 107d? If so, when you read a burnt dvd, does it make 3 or 4 wierd noises when doing a transfer test with cdspeed? You would have to be close to the drive to hear it. It sounds like it's either spinning up or down during the test. It may sound like it's struggling. It does it on all dvd burnt media. It even happens with my Taiyo Yuden 8x dvd-r, that I get good scans with.
Then, there is a loud noise before I burn a cd. Is that normal? I don't get any weird noise before I burn a dvd.
I did a transfer rate test with a pressed cd that was almost full. When it got to the 40x mark, it started sounding bad. It made a loud high pitch noise. It sounded like a cricket.
If I burn a data cd, the verification test, in nero, will pass. If I burn an audio cd and try to verify it, in nero, it will fail. Is this normal for a Pioneer A07 drive?
I have no idea if this has always happened or if it started when I updated to the 1.18 firmware. I didn't use it much for reading, so I can't remember.
Hopefully someone can help. I haven't even really used the drive much, so if it's going bad, then that's pretty shocking, unless it was bad out of the box, and I didn't know it.
