Pioneer A04 won't burn on outer edge

Anybody else having trouble burning past the 4 gig area on your A04? I thought going to the 1.40 official firmware upgrade would work, it hasn't. I thought it was the media, but I've tested with Apple, Pioneer, and Verbatim (all highly regarded). I've burned with PrimoDVD, Veritas, even Pinnacle InstantCopy. All the same problem. I'm not sure, but it looks like the laser is fading out in the last 5mm or so of the outer edge. The net result, my movies play great on my HD, but the burnt DVD-R's die right at the end...time and time again. Oh, and I'm running on Windows 2000, NTFS...so, please don't tell me I'm running into a FAT file limit problem. Anyone experiencing this? Anyone figured out a solution? There a prior firmware that's more stable? I'm beginning to check the warranty info now, as I got this less than a year ago from VideoGuys...and I'm horrified to think the unit has already kicked the bucket.
