Dvr-106d -Windows freezes,cant read new Dvds

Hello, My Pioneer dvr-106d refuses to read certain discs (even if new), there are a few different things that happen: When i insert a dvd windows freezes; happened with an old burned dvd movie. I tried to play a new 5 dvd set i bought wich works on an other pc,first drive reads a bit, mouse changes then nothing; it just shows a "new folder" when i click on the drive where the dvd is in When i insert a music cd, it works most of the time, cant remember problems with that. When i check for problems nothing happens , device is ready it says all the time. If it helps the same happens with my Sony -DDu 1612 drive I took the drive from my other pc and excanged it with the sony but it still couldnt read the new discs :D . Thanks a lot in advance Light Thanks a lot in advance

If you have had two drives with the same problem i would check the ide cable and swap to another one if you have a master and slave twin connector ide cable, or even try the dvd rom on the same ide cable as the hard drive as you know that that ide connector and cable is working, unless you have a SATA hard drive in which case you won't be able to; but will still have a spare ide channel connector to try the drive on.

Are you do firmware?
In most case when I do firmware upgrade with pioneer DVD, I can´t fix the problem.
Now you have trouble with chip on your DVD burner, the best solution is bay another, because you can´t try again firmware upgrade.
Only what you can do with dvd or cd rom is cleaning or change a laser, but you have diferent trouble.

Hopefully, these will help you to get the DVDs to run without having to shell out for them.

DVD+RW compatibility

your dvd only writes to dvd-r and dvd-rw, but writes to both cdr + and - r/rw. To confirm it go into nero tools and nero info tools and all the ticks in the boxes are what your drive supports
