    I'm running Win 7, build 7100 on my all three of my computers. On my OLDEST System I consistently fail to get a successful Burn of a CD/DVD.

    The system consists of :

    A7N8X Deluxe Ver 2.0 MB
    Athlon XP 2600+ @ 2.08 GHz
    Bios Rev 1006
    ATI Radeon 9600XT
    1 Gig of memory
    PIONEER__DVR-116D, Firmware V. _1.09 (IDE)
    Win 7 Build 7100

    I would appreciate any suggestion on resolving this problem.

    Did you try a free 3rd party burning app. ?

    If that works - there is some problem between 7100 and your dvddrive.

    If it doesn't work - maybe try the mfr website for a firmware/driver update for the dvddrive.

    THANKS for your response.

    This is the error I receive with WIN &.

    Code:
    There was a problem burning this disc
    
    The disc wasn’t burn successfully. Make sure that you have the latest firmware for your CD or DVD burner installed, and then try again.
    According to SIW this is my drive and it’s current firmware:

    PIONEER__DVR-116D, Firmware V. _1.09 (IDE)

    According to this PIONEEER Website:

    Firmware DOWNLOAD : PIONEER CORPORATION

    FIRMWARE VERSION 1.09 is the latest.

    DVR-116D
    (SV BK D) Tray DVD-R/RW (ATAPI)
    Once updated to version 1.09, this drive will not revert to older firmware versions. Change history

    Download
    DVR-116D_FW109EU2.EXE (1.1MB)
    updated November 11, 2008


    This drive is an IDE on the secondary channel; set up as MASTER, no other drives are on this channel with it.

    Questions

    Assuming you upgraded from something, what was that something and could you burn a DVD before the upgrade? Also, what software are you trying to use for the burn? Have you tried running your burn software in compatibility mode? Your burn software may not be compatible with Win 7.

    SIW2,

    Downloaded Total Free Burner, seem to be working fine until the end.
    I got an error:

    A WRITE ERROR occurred.
    [Bad Request (168,1)]

    Using RIDATA DVR-R, 8X purchased from Newegg

    Tried to access the DVD and it's seems to be accessible, the data there even though I received the error.

    That error seems to be unconnected to the refusal of 7110 to burn dvd's.

    Not sure what it is - did you give the burner.exe Run as Admin ( rt click the .exe select Properties>Compatibilty, tick run as admin . Apply. o.k. )

    This problem has persisted from the time I installed Windows 7, Build 7100 on this system. It was a clean installed.

    I have tried several programs. Here's a posting from IMGBURN back on 4 June 2009

    UNABLE TO BURN - CREATING COASTERS - ImgBurn Support Forum

    Does anyone have a link to one of the later build; if not I have 3 copies on order from Amazon when it releases in October. Hopefully, I will not have this problem with the RTM.

    Try uninstalling the dvd drive in device manager - reboot and it should reinstall again.

    Make a system restore point first.

    Problem resolved - pioneer dvd writer

    SIW2

    Do appreciate your help.

    I finally found the problem. It's the PIONEER__DVR-116D, Firmware V. _1.09 (IDE)

    I replaced it was an old MITSUMI CR48X9TE CD WRITER and after about 10 CD I haven't created a coaster yet. Also IMGBURN & TOTALLY FREE program both works without errors.

    Now I need to order a replacement DVD Burner.

    Thanks for the update - we suspected that may be the problem early on.

    Too bad you need to get a new dvd drive - glad the problem is resolved.:D

    windows 7 build 7100 sucks

    yeah that version of windows 7 is realy bad, not only a lot of driver problems als device manager problems, some problems are gone , bud they added new problems instead.
    If windows 7 is that bad i wil wait a long time after the retail release to install it on my pc, or i wil try it out on a other hd like i am doing now with the beta release.
