Is this a new drive? If so, make sure that the media is put "label side up". You have a bad drive if this is not the case...accordianman

When I insert a blank DVD-R disk into my Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-111D burner, no "untitled disk" icon appears on my desktop. I am using a Mac mini computer. This is the first time this has happened...

Go into your system profiler. Make sure the DVD is showing up. Click the DVD and check what disks it can use and make sure the disks you are using are compatible.

Best of luck, Jim

My drive is listed as DVD-RW-DVR-lllD, but when I put a DVD disk into it, it changes automatic to CD-RW Drive E. How do I keep it as a DVD burner?

Try burning a disk, and taking the burnt disk to another computer, to see if the other computer recognizes the media as being a DVD disk.

Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-111d instruction manual

The manual likely is at the Pioneer website. But why do you need it? These drives stick in your computer pretty easily, and only function if you have a good DVD burning program installed. Did it come with an installation CD? Your burning program may be on that. If you run into trouble, just call Pioneer--they owe it to you.
