Question about Pioneer DVR-112D DVD RW Dual Layer Burner

Pioneer DVR-112D disc recognition

I have two new drives. One I insert a disc, under "My Computer" it recognizes that a disc has been inserted, however, I cannot access anything on either a DVD or CD-Rom. It shows 0 bytes. We initially had the drives on cable select. We changed that to master/slave. Now one drive works sometimes and the other, although it shows up in My Computer, it doesn't recognize any discs. Help!

    I am running Windows XP. That was the first thing I tried. The problem was a software issue. I uninstalled Roxio software that was recently installed and the drives work now without any problems.

    My DVR-112d won't recognize movie rental DVDs when inserted. My jumpers are set to Master for the DVR-112d and Slave for my other DVD burner. I have no Roxio software on my computer. The OS is win xp. I tried loading the latest drivers for both burners and it didn't help. I've always had problems with this computer(Dell Dimension 8200) recognizing disks.

Cd software disc will not load on to my computer. Isn't being recognized


If in case the cd was not recognized upon loading it to the computer you may do the following to check wether the cd is faulty or the cd drive.
  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 have DVD 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.

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.

It sounds as if the disc drive laser has died, when they burn out they will not recognize any disc inserted. fortunatly a replacement drive is relativly inexpensive to replace.

Disc drive stopped recognizing discs


This is fairly common, it means the actual DVD drive has failed. You will need to call Nintendo. There is a good chance it is still under warranty and they will fix it for free. Their number is 1-800-255-3700

Cannor Read DVDs


I have a similar issue to you, except that my dvd drive will only recognize a disc if I have booted up into windows with it in the tray...once in windows it will still think it has the first disc in no matter what disc i insert. If i boot up with no disc then it will never read it unless I follow the steps below.

A solution I found by pure frustration and trying all sorts of things is to eject the DVD tray and leave it opened, then right click on the dvd drive in 'my computer' and select the 'hardware' tab...then select the drive and click 'properties'.
A new window should open. Select 'volumes' and click 'populate'. Now close the window and insert the disc you wish to read, close the tray and repeat this process. Windows should now recognize the disc you inserted

Alot of trouble I know, but it works for me. Hope this helps.

My CompactFlash card is no longer recognized by my computer (Sony Vaio notebook w/Windows XP home edition)


It isn't clear from your description, but are you inserting the reader into your USB port, and *then* inserting the CF into the reader? If so, try reversing this -- insert the CF into the reader, then insert the reader (with the CF) into a USB port. It is possible that your PC is only looking at the reader once (when it is inserted) and not finding a CF, then ignoring the CF once you insert it. If your camera can read and write to the CF, then it is unlikely that the CF is damaged. Since you have determined that the reader is ok, and since your PC recognises the reader, it is unlikely that it is a USB driver problem. Similarly, it is unlikely that it is a physical problem with the USB port, or the pins in the reader or the CF card.
