I upgraded to 8.0 and received the DFX package with the upgrade. However I am having trouble getting the DVD to play back in my DVD player. I notified Eyeon and they sent a replacement, but that one has the same problem. I get an error that says disc is corrupted. Other DVD's work fine in my player (Pioneer DVD Rom DVD-104, a few years old) So I'm not sure what the problem might be. Has anyone had similar problems at all or know of a workaround? I've downloaded most recent drivers also.

Not sure what media type the DFX courseware is on, but if it's DVD+R that might be the prob. I have the Pioneer A104 and it only burns DVD-R, so I think it may only read that as well.

I think the bundle is shipped with 7.5 and DFX+. The LW8 ships later.

Well, the information on pioneers web site states that the 104s which I have does not read DVD-Ram. I'll bet that is the format of this DVD. I have other DVD's that work with no problem. Just this one.

again,

put the DVD in your DVD reader that's in your PC
not a standalone TV box, it's a PC/mac DVD made for viewing on a computer

Works just fine in my Pioneer.

Well, I'm guessing my DVD player is too old to recognize whatever format Eyeon is using for their DVD. So I'm out of luck unless I upgrade to a newer player. Thanks for all your help though peoples - - - :)

did you try getting a firmware update for your drive?

You can download firmware updates from Pioneer, and flash the drive.

Just like flashing the bios on a motherboard.

THe A04 isn't that out of date.

Thanks MadMax, but I do have the latest firmware and drivers for this drive. And it is model 104s. At least 3 years old. I'll have to check my records. But it is a 10x slot load DVD-Rom. It's not a DVD recorder. Just a player.
