so I got a 105 drive 2 weekends back, I bought some datasafe DVD-RW's, i got some BulkPaq Gen 4's and some Fujifilm "DVD-R for Data" disks.
All of these write fine, the BulkPaq's even write fine at 2x, they verify fine and all is well, BUT only in the drive it was burned in.
I have some other crappy drive thats circa 1999 and it reads the DVD-R's but just barfs on the DVD-RW (no surprise cos its too old).
It reads the Fujifilm fine, no errors, md5sum's are fine everything is dandy.
It reads the Bulkpaq's ok, up to about halfway through and then goes totally mad with errors and IDE bus resets and what not.
I am wondering if its possible that its just the old crappy drive thats over the wall and needs a replacement or if my 105 is also fubar and like the rest of us I will just sit and wait for pioneer to unscrew us with their dodgy practises and release a new firmware.
