I just got this problem also recently on my Pioneer 105. Don't know what went wrong, perhaps my drive seen it's last days. Did some searching online about this issue, still nothing releveant to what i'm looking for.

I found this article which may help :


If I am reading things right, it seems as though the errors may be associated with reading data from the Hard Drive and not to do with the Burner.

It might be worth doing a Defrag and disk check, to see if this helps.

Also it's possible that the problem might lie in ripping the data to the HD.
I read on another forum that updating to latest vers. of DVD Decrypter ( might help.
Also, if you have a Lite-On DVD-ROM drive, update to latest firmware, as recent Lite-Ons have known issues, with DVD Decrypter (165 & 166 I think).
Lightening UK acknowledges this and has fixed it for the new version( due out soon we hope.

Hope this helps
