Look for the mark at the top, MA for master, SL - slave, CS - cable select, these three are main connection for IDE designation using the plastic jumper, just follow where it is in your pioneer.

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

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.

DVR-112D DVD RW Dual Layer

Check with a NEW PC - DVD Cable, if it is NOT that.. then I am sorry, but I reckon it's gone faulty somehow? Especially if it causes the PC to not boot. This is a common occurrence, even for NEW units..
