Question about Pioneer DVR-111D (DVR111DBK) DVD RW Dual Layer Burner

2 Answers

Pioneer dvd writer problem.

Hi all, I have a pioneer dvd writer 111 something and everytime I am inserting a dvd to burn something it is being recognised as a cd. Is it possible that the laser of the DVD is not working and so it is only the cd laser that is working. Is there something to fix this problem or it would be better if i change the dvd writer with a new one.
Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

Kindly try the following solution before you think of changing the drive..

Click Start, click Run, type regedit and then click OK. Registry Editor starts.

In Registry Editor, expand My Computer, and then expand and open
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SYSTEM>CurrentControlSet>Control>Class
Under Class, click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
In the right pane (topic area), right click UpperFilter and delete the entry, also right click Lower Filter and delete the entry.

Close the Registry Editor and Restart the computer.

Hope it Helps
All The Best
Sammy

Sometimes it depends on what kind of dvd-r you buy because they have DVD+R DVD-R DVD-DL ect it might also depend on the brand of the dvd-r most of the time the more exspencive ones work better Like sony or memorex

first make sure that your dvd drive has power. to test just press the eject button. go to device manager, find dvd/cd-rom drives there and expand it. If the pioneer dvr is present and has an exclamation point then just reinstall the driver for that drive. if not there then check in the bios if its there, just got to system information in your bios. If not there then open your tower and unplug and replug the cable connecting your drive to te motherboard. then check again.

Will this burner work on dual layer discs?


Pioneer has released Firmware for the DVR-107D DVD Writer and DVR-A07XLA & XLB DVD Writer. This release # is 1.18.
http://www.pioneeraus.com.au/computer/firmware.html
(a ZIP file download, but uncompresses to an .EXE, as does theflashman.rpc1.org site download. I can't uncompress the EXEs with Stuffit (standard) Expander v7.0x here, but Scott said he used version 8.0.2 )
Looks like we are getting closer to Dual Layer Support:
(although some have flashed NEC ND-2500A drives to DL 2510 model firmware, I doubt that Pioneer will release an official firmware update for the 107D to add dual-layer burning. Like other mfrs, I suspect they'll sell a new drive model with DL burning support.)
    For Models DVR-107D FW Version 1.18
  • DVD-R Writability Improvement
  • +R Writability Improvement
  • DVD-RAM Playability Improvement
  • CD Playability Improvement
  • +R DL DoubleLayer Playback Implemented (NOT Record)

    For Models DVR-A07XLA, DVR-A07XLB, DVR-107AXL & DVR-107BXL FW Version 1.18
  • DVD-R Writability Improvement
  • +R Writability Improvement
  • DVD-RAM Playability Improvement

My dvd writer plays disk but when i try to burn movies doesnt let me keeps telling me to insert disk helpi have dvd rom pioneer dvd 115


First check the program you are using has selected the dvd-rom drive on pc.
If its selected and its still a problem then try changing to different brand of blank DVDR . I have used Tuffdisc , Bulkpaq, Datasafe, and Verbatim and few others on similar model Pioneer DVD writer and it works fine.

This ahs to with speed of recording of the CD/DVD try reading CD/DVD burnt at a lower speed like 16x.

Most DVD writers has low maximum reading speed as compared to CD-ROMs.

You can try burning a CD on it and then reading it, if reads then it shows that other cd were burnt at faster speed than it can read.

If it read lower speed CDs then you can just add an additional DVD/CD-ROM just to read faster speed disks.

Only dvd burners with Double Layer DL DVD R Media compatibility are able to burn the Double Layer Media. If your dvd burner does not have the capabilities, it is possible to be upgraded to burn Double Layer media, check your burner manufacturer for details. Other ways to say it is DVD+R DL media, Double Layer DL Media, Dual Layer Media, and DL DVD R Media.

Burning a dvd


What software are u using? If you have nero then it should be easy. Study on the kind of software u are using. Look at the recorder option, all options should be unchecked, especially high compatibility mode.
