    I have a pioneer dvdr112 and dvr111 installed on my pc and decided to upgrade to the the dvr115.

    I am having an issue with layer breaks when burning on the fly on 2 dvr115D's. . I dont seem to have any issues when using the dvr112 or 111.

    Here is the information I am getting after the burn using clone cd.

    I am wondering why the layer breaks are not matching. I dont really understand too much about layer breaks or bit setting so I am not sure if it is a hardware setting that I need to change but using the older drives seem to work. I thought it was the sata drives that had the problkem but when switching to the ide versions I have the same issue.

    Thank you for anyone that can be of assistance.

    I have upgraded to the latest firmware as well which is 1.18 and one is set to master and the other one is set to slave if that helps. I only have one IDE port on the motherboard so I cant have them both as masters but I dont have any problems when using my old 111D and 112D
