    i have tried to burn dvd's, both from inside my computer and from other disks. getting the movies onto my hard drive was easy, but getting them onto the blank disks turned out to be impossible.the burner wouldn't even acknowledge the disk in the drive! i have tried this both + and - disks, with the same result. i think it might have meen the brand (maxell), but i doubt it; they worked in the past.

This is correct, as there is no TOC on a blank disk there is nothing to read. it is your writing software that identifies blank media when inserted, so you may wish to check your software is appropriate for your requirements Cheers :D

PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-112D won't burn discs. G4, OS 10.4.11

So the driver is either 'malfunctioning' or it's you know what revision firmware the drive is using? Your disk authoring software may tell you this. The latest version is 1.22 which you can get by Googling PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-112D firmware. Or go to the Pioneer website. I do not know how to upgrade the firmware for the recorder in MAC Land, in PC Land the firmware update is a simple executable file.

If you are running this version you can try to reflash it. Have you tried another brand of DVD disc? Some discs are less compatible than others. Try another brand of DVD

Pioneer is aware of a potential issue with the above drives’ CD (not DVD) read/write capability.

My dvd burneer wont reconise dvd and dvd_rw discs

Check the blank disks in another computer if you can in case they are damaged and causing a fatal error when your computer tries to read them, and the reboot.

Are you sure it's SCSI and not SATA as scsi isn't very common these days especially on desktop type PC's? Where are you looking to see if the driver is correct?
If the drive is displaying and can be accessed from your operating system then it should be working fine.

My pioner dvd dr 1120 d wont reconise blank dvd's

Open it with NERO softwer and add some files to burn, down at the right end of window (nero's) have a line that says how much space on disc there is.
Simple as this, I just caimed from my DVD dealer and he explained to me, Empty disc will always say 0 Bytes but if you open Nero Burner you'll be able to se how much of space is free on scale, after and whille adding files to burn image.
Hope you understand me :)
