DFX courseware DVD

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.

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

dvd-ram medium (i've a player and writer in my notebook) costs about 20-30$ and is rewriteable and the dfx- courseware works fine on mine !

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THe A04 isn't that out of date.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.
