Toast 9, Problem With Lacie D2 External Dvd-rw Drives


Mike Johnson

Question

I have recently ran in to a problem with Toast 9.0.2 and burning DVDs to Pioneer DVR-112D drives in Lacie d2 firewire/USB external cases. I have three Lacie d2 cases. One is older and is firewire only using an Oxford 911 chipset. The other two are newer and are firewire and USB using the Oxford 911-ATAPI chipset. The older, firewire-only unit works fine. The newer units always fail using firewire with the error "Mismatch at byte 0/sector 0. Verification failed." The burned discs are unreadable. Both of these units do work with Toast 9 if I use USB. Both units work fine with firewire and USB if I burn from the Finder. I have the same problem on my MacBook Pro and iMac. (Both are mid-2007 models, 2.4 Ghz, 4 Gb RAM running 10.5.3.) Problem occurs with DVD-R and DVD-RW media. Lacie and Pioneer firmware is up-to-date. The Lacie drive is the only device on the firewire bus.

 

These Lacie units have worked previously with Toast 8, however, I do not know for sure if they have ever worked with version 9. I have very recently rebuilt my MacBook Pro from scratch with a fresh format and install of OS 10.5 and a reinstall of all software. The iMac is new, so the installation conditions are the same.

 

In the process of troubleshooting, I reinstalled Toast 8.0.4 and it works fine. I also removed Toast 9.0.2 and re-installed 9.0.1, which acts the same as 9.0.2.

 

I am not sure what else to try. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

So, to summarize, I can't burn to a Pioneer DVR-112D using a Lacie d2 FW/USB external case connected with firewire. My Lacie's are running Lacie firmware v1.02.0500 dated Oct 12 2006. The bridge boards are labelled v2.0.2.0.

 

I've just had the same problem with a Pioneer DVR-112D in an external case. Tried burning three DVDs and each time came up with "Mismatch at byte 0/sector 0. Verification failed." message.

 

I used this same drive many times with Toast v7.x

 

Regards

John, thanks for the help. I found a Pioneer DVR-112D at work that has firmware 1.21 on it. I tried it this morning and it fails like the others I have tried.

Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help track this down.

It seems to be the Pioneer DVR-112D's . . .

 

I tried burning with firewire using the original Lacie-supplied TSST SH-S162 mechanisms, and they worked fine. I tried an old Apple-firmware Pioneer DVR-107 and it too worked fine.

 

I tried a brand-new never-opened Pioneer DVR-112D, and it failed, just like the others. All have Pioneer firmware 1.24. (I'd like to find one with older firmware and try it.)

It sounds like you have done some thorough testing. I passed this thread along to our test labs as well just to make sure they were aware of the issue. It sound like at this point it very well may be an issue specific to that model of drive but they can do some additional testing and get things sorted out. Unfortunately because you have been rather thorough in your testing I cant think of anything extra that we can ask you to do for now. If I get any additional things to try from our test labs, I'll be sure to pass them on.

I have recently upgraded to Toast 10 and this problem remains for me. My Mac are now running 10.5.6. Toast 8 still works fine, but 9 and 10 fail when using firewire in my specific setup.

I see that the latest firmware for the DVR-112 is 1.28. You should be able to use DVRFlash 2 to update the firmware via the Mac although the usual warnings apply. The Pioneer site says that once updated to 1.28 the drive cannot be flashed to a lower version firmware. (I just looked at the change history and the update is for an issue with Windows Vista).

 

LaCie tunes the firmware in its case to the firmware it provides for the enclosed drive. So there also is a chance that the LaCie case combined with the DVR-112 combined with everything else is the issue. You might check the drive compatibility database at xlr8yourmac.com to learn what others report who are using that Pioneer drive.

I hope a Roxio person sees your post. I also recommend using the Feedback link in Toast Help to notify them of your findings. Have you communicated any of this with LaCie? My LaCie Firewire drive is older so I haven't experienced this.

After reading your reply, I left feedback for Roxio through the link in Toast. I have not yet communicated with LaCie. Once the warranty on the d2 cases expired I upgraded them with newer DVD drive mechanisms. I should dig out the original drives to see if there is a problem with them, too.

 

I did try Toast 9 on my PowerBook G4 1.67 GHz, tonight, and I have the same problem with it.
