You need to format your drive to work with your Mac. The drive is shipped formatted as NTFS (Windows).
I'm going to assume that you are using Mac OS X 10.5 or later.
1. Open Disk Utility
2. Select Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility
3. In the left hand column, click on the drive icon for the Iomega Hard Drive.
********Make sure you click on the high level icon, not the second level volume icon.********
4. Select the Partition tab.
5. Change Volume Scheme from Current to 1 Partition.
6. Select the format type from the Format drop-down menu.
Select Mac OS Extended (Journaled) (recommended) or Mac OS Extended.
7. Click on the Options button.
8. Select the type of partition you want to use:
GUID Partition Table - for boot ability on Intel-based Macs
Apple Partition Map - for boot ability on PowerPC-based Macs
Master Boot Record - if you will use the drive on a PC as well as your Mac. Use this option ONLY if you selected PC-DOS as the format type.
CAUTION! In most cases, the computer will fail to format the drive as a Mac OS Extended (HFS+) partition using Master Boot Record. For best results, always choose GUID Partition Table (Intel) or Apple Partition Map (PowerPC).
9. Click OK.
10. Click Apply (10.5-10.6) or Partition (10.4). The drive is ready to use when the format completes.
Go into your printer driver; ie. control panel -> printers and right click the CD/DVD printer. Press "Printing Preferences" near the bottom of the Properties window. Click on "Clean/Change cartrdiges & check Ink" and select properties.
The factory says that you cannot change the drive from a CD drive to a DVD drive yourself. Although you can physically make the change, they indicate that the motherboard needs to be modified or changed in order to switch from CD to DVD. That's why they get $400 to make the upgrade. They don't provide any parts to do this, either, because I'm sure it wouldn't be a trivial change.
Pioneer 115's require a special firmware to allow the drive trays to eject far enough so that the robot can drop the discs into the tray cleanly. The firmware for the 115 can be found at http://www.primera.com/downloads/support/DriveFirmware/DriveFirmware.html. Hopefully this should fix your problem.
Thanks..piece of cake. A few things to know.
1. The entire robot mechanism does not have to be taken apart, but it has to be taken out in order to get to the screws that hold the drive.
2. Make sure you use the correct holes when installing the drive. If not the robot will not be in the center of the disk when it goes to pick it up.
3. I did it in less than an hour. Drive cost me 22 bucks.
