In a 17in PowerBook G4. I have just had my third drive fail immediately after burning a CD-RW disc. The first two drives lasted five months each, and were replaced under warranty by the Pioneer DVR-K06 I purchased them from Meritline. Both drives were dated April I don't burn too many CDs.


I primarily Pioneer DVR-K06 DVDs. When I received my third drive from Meritline, it was dated March Because of the previous failures, I made an effort to burn more CDs in the drive to see if it would fail. After three weeks of use, the third drive also failed, again after burning a CD-RW. These discs are not new as I purchased them in July I have been using a mix of used and unused discs.


I use these same discs in my other burners without any issues. I contacted Pioneer tech support and they have no record of any major issues with this drive. The tech did not feel the discs could cause any damage to the drive, and declined to have me send in any samples for testing. Pioneer will replace the drive under warranty. I have also contacted Verbatim, but I have not heard back from them. I will probably have Meritline replace the drive again, as Pioneer takes three weeks or longer to process warranty returns. The first two drives failed completely. The third drive only fails to recognize Pioneer DVR-K06.


Some readers with "failed" desktop drives said that although "Cleaning discs" didn't help, a manual cleaning of the laser did. If the drive hasn't had a laser or other hardware failure of course. I did a Google search and a search on the Apple Discussions, and I have only found two mentions of a similar problem drives failing to recognize CDs. I would be interested if anyone else has had trouble Pioneer DVR-K06 this Pioneer drive It was built in October and we have been using it since December, mainly with our 2.

It has also been used occasionally with several other Macs, from our old DA G4 to a friend's new 24" iMac, running several versions of Tiger and Leopard. System Profiler reports it as "Apple Shipping Pioneer DVR-K06.

Pioneer DVR-K06 version is 1. Pioneer DVR-K06 estimate it has burned and perhaps 20 DVD-R. It has not burned more than a half-dozen CDs and no -RWs of any type. After reading the reports, we will just avoid rewritable media altogether. Almost all the burning has been with Toast 8. A pleasant surprise is that it has burned our old Verbatim 2. It never gets very hot at all, even when burning double sided DVDs.

It is also very slow compared to our 20X Firewire burners, but far quieter and fits in a laptop bag. Only four months, but so Pioneer DVR-K06 so very good. We usually just let Toast select the "best" speed, and noticed that the maximum speed on the 2. The average speed was under 3X. These disks perform that way in our full size burners, but the K06 was still a surprise.

It was purchased for portability not performance. We have been in business since and have CD-Rs that Pioneer DVR-K06 that old and are all still reading perfectly.

Of course we don't rely on such old disks, but have decided that we don't have to re-record them every year as we did back then. We think we are Pioneer DVR-K06 to re-record our archived data every five years, since the quality of Pioneer DVR-K06 media is much improved.
