Installed new Pioneer DVR-112D

I just replaced the dvd drive in my pavillion A475c computer with a different dvd drive. I put in a Pioneer DVR-112D, now the drive does not work. Is there any way to make this drive compatible?

Re: installed new Pioneer DVR-112D

 Are you using an 80-conductor type ribbon cable? The new drive requires 80-conductor cable. Plus, you may need to switch the jumper on the back of the DVR drive to CS.

I just found your motherboard specs

It uses SATA and Ultra DMA (80-conductor).
Is the jumper set to master?? You may need to pull the jumper off and see if the DVR drive works with it off.

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

you probably need to reinstall the drivers for it.  what operating system are you running?

for most versions of windows, the first thing to try is to go to control panel, and then run the add new hardware wizard.

if that doesn't work, you may need to install drivers or firmware for the Pioneer Burner:
