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

Won't read Nero 7 Installation CD

I installed the DVD drive, but it won't read the installation disc. It says "d:\is not accessible. Incorrect function". The drive will play DVDs, CDs, and pre-burned DVDs, but it won't burn, (same message appears)and won't let me access any files. I've tried to change the 'Autoplay' and uninstall/reinstall the drivers but had no luck. I'm not an expert, so layman's terms would be appreciated. Here are some of my specs to the best of my ability: Windows XP SP2 384 MB of RAM Pentium III 930 MHz I'll gladly send more info if needed. Thanks!

Re: Won't read Nero 7 Installation CD

Firstly ensure the drive letter is correct for your dvd drive, if you still have an old drive fitted as well this new one the drive letter will probably be E:\. It may be that the bios is not seeing the correct dvd drive. On boot up press F2 or DEL, this will take you to the 'standard cmos settings' line. Highlight this line and press enter. You should then see a list of drives attached to your pc, normally pressing F3 or a similair command(depending on motherboard it will tell you how to do this on bottom of screen) detects all drives. Otherwise go to each line Pri, Sec etc, and press enter on each to see what appears. When you see your dvd drive is recognised, press F10, this will save and force a re boot. Also try right clicking on your DVD drive and go to properties, there should be a tab saying enable writing on this drive, but be cautious as Windows Writing programme may take over from Nero. Please rate solution

I put in a blank cd and I cannot burn it because in my computer it shows that there is no cd inserted

CD/DVD Is Not Recognized
spacer.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif Many times, after inserting a disc into the CD or DVD drive, the disc is not recognized by that drive. CD-read and DVD-read issues can be caused by many sources. Perform the procedures presented in this General Computer Advice article when troubleshooting CD-read and DVD-read issues.

Begin with the first procedure and continue through the list. Try using the CD or DVD after each procedure is completed. For any procedure that requires changing current system settings, record the original settings before completing the procedure.
  1. Verify that the correct disc (CD/DVD) is used when prompted to insert the disc.
  2. For programs on DVD, verify that the drive containing the DVD is a DVD drive and not a CD-ROM drive. Most DVD drives will haveDVD printed on the front of the drive. For programs on DVD, consider the following:
  • DVD drives can read both DVD's and CD's.
  • CD-ROM drives can read only CD's.
  1. If multiple disc drives (e.g., CD-ROM and CD-RW, or DVD and DVD-RW, or CD-ROM and DVD-RW, etc.) exist on the computer that can read the disc (refer to the items under Step 2), insert the CD or DVD into the other drive and try the program again.
  2. If you are attempting to install a program and the installation does not begin after inserting the CD/DVD into the proper drive, refer to the program's instructions for the installation procedure.
  3. Clean the CD/DVD in the following manner:
  1. Place a small amount of nonabrasive liquid soap on the shiny side of the CD/DVD.
  2. Using your fingertips and warm water, gently rub the soap on the CD/DVD in a circular motion.
  3. Rinse the CD/DVD thoroughly and dry it using a clean, soft T-shirt or lint-free towel. (Do not use paper towels or tissue paper.)
  1. Try to use a different CD or DVD in the drive to see if that disc can be read.
  2. If possible, insert the problem CD or DVD into the DVD or CD drive of another computer to see if the issue persists.

    Samsung SH-S202N CD DVD burner

    I have the same Samsung Multi DVD Recorder as it calls itself and it works OK with XP for me. You probably need to install the Nero software that came with it as it normally contain the hardware drivers that are needed. Sorry if I'm too late with this reply but I only just came across your post.

    DVD burner problem

    hi DARBAIL!
    I have the same unit like you. I Have experienced that the cd/ dvd burner doesn't work because cables might have loosen up. Check the IDE cable if it was connected properly. Try to Check also the burner eg. Nero maybe it was not installed properly. Check the installation settings If it was installed completely. Try to check also the system of your computers may be the Direct X component was not installed.

    If you have tune up utilities, Try to Check it properly using the device manager if it was installed in your system.

    Lastly, after you have tried all of this but nothing is happening. Your unit CD/ DVD has faulted. Better buy a new one.

    Dvd writer does not burn on raw file system cds

    What OS are you using? I doubt it is the burner. I have the same model burner and it burns everything I try to burn just fine. It works on both my XP SP2 installation and the OS X86 Leopard 10.5.5 installation. I have burned video, data and bootable OS DVDs and CDs in both operating systems.

    It may just be Nero. You could try Alcohol 120% or Ultra ISO.

    I can't write DVD with my Pioneer DVR-107D DVD±RW

    What brand of media are you using?

    You are burning at 2x because that is the highest that this drive supports.

    You would also want to instruct Nero to Verify by ticking the check box and either finalize disc or make it mulitsession, if your burner supports multisession DVDs
