pioneer 530 problems with dvd-rw


Standard Member
I have just started having problems when initializing or finalizing dvd-rw on the 530. It can take ages to initialize and sometimes gives errors (cant complete initializing, cannot fix error). If I try again then it can let me initialize the dvd-rw but I have thrown a couple away that wouldn't work. Then it can take more than one go to finalize the dvd-rw.

Has anyone else had this happen with the 530?

I am using quite new datawrite dvd-rws which have given no trouble until recently. I hope it isn't a sign of the 530 on the way out!

I have had a lot of problems with "copy err" on disks but these cleared up when I used a can of "air duster" to clean the inside of the dvd drive. Don't know how but some crud had got in there. May even have been there from day one!

Posted my own reply in case someone else has similar problem.
