Now a days you cant really put the cables in wrong becasue they only fit a certain way. but be sure its plugged into the IDE 2 slot on the board and isnt connected on the same ribbon as the HDD. Now it may be a frimware issue, check the website for updates and make sure you have all the driver updates for your Mainboard also. also check the bios to be sure its not turned off, not likely but check anyways.

If you have only one CD/DVD drive, set the jumper to MASTER since its the only one, Or you could set it to CABLE SELECT. And be sure that the IDE cable thats plugged in coresponds to the jumper. I.E. IDE's Master connector is plugged in if the jumper is set to master on the CD/DVD drive. Some mainboards are picky.

If you can see the drive then all your connections is fine. I think the culprit is your dvdr disc.Try to use any good disc and see whether it can read or not.

Can you see this drive in the BIOS, My Computer or Device Manager?
If not, you need to re-check the cables. If so, it may be defective.

Insert a normal cd and see wether it can read or not, if it display the same message that means your drive is not recognizing the cd, or dvd, reason lens of your cd/dvd unable to read, or your cd/dvd is bad.

Dvd writer


Hi.
I stick with Pioneer at the moment. I've had so much trouble with many other brands, but Pioneer drives seem very good at writing even low quality discs which tends to be an indication of a good drive.

Computer DVD/CD Drive does not recognise any discs


The most likely cause is a faulty DVD drive. Replacing the DVD drive is fairly simple.

You can buy a new one online for around $25 including shipping. If you need help finding a drive or installing a drive, I can help with that. Just let me know.

My pioneer cd/dvd/rw-dvr 111D will not recognize a cd in the drive, usually this happens with game cds. it does recognize some,but some it does not. i have put the same disc into another computers cd/dvd...


My cd drive does this as well not a good thing but I have found that if you put a disc you know it will read in then anydisc you want it to read it should read it. Mine only does it every now and then. I have also found that if just after the cd door closes if you give it a tap on the cd door it will read the disc try it it might work for you. I have taken mine to a repairer and the drive is operating fine and they could not figure out what was wrong for it to do that and yes it did do it for them to.
