    10 of 10 single-layer disks (Laser brand) have this error. I'll try flashing the firmware. Then its the sledge hammer and the bits posted back to Pioneer with a note saying where to shove them.

Updated firmware will not help. this is a known issue with Pioneer DVR-112D, drive needs to be replaced. Contact Pioneer for a free replacement, here is the url http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Support/Important%3A+Notice+Regarding+CD+Read+and+Write+Functionality+in+Certain+Pioneer+Computer+Drive+Models

The issue occurs only under limited environmental and use conditions that are not typical for most end users, so Pioneer anticipates that most users will not be affected. If you are not experiencing any issues currently, there is no need to take immediate action. The service issue does not pose any health or safety risk.
Pioneer is aware of a potential issue with the above drives’ CD (not DVD) read/write capability. Under certain environmental and heavy use conditions, the above drives may become unable to read or write to CDs. To address this issue, for any of the above model drives that become unable to read and/or write to CDs, Pioneer will provide a replacement unit (which may be a newer model number) at no extra charge, shipping prepaid, subject to the terms and conditions of Pioneer’s standard limited warranty(excluding duration).
Again, we anticipate that most drives will not be affected. However, if your DVR-1810, DVR-2810, DVR-X122, DVR-112D, DVR-112DBK, or DVR-112DSV drive becomes unable to read or write to CDs, please contact Pioneer Customer Service by one of the following methods:

Try running a firmware update. You can get the firmware at the following link: http://www.pioneer.eu/eur/support/software/DVR-112DSV/index.html#download_103

If you have not ran your windows updates yet you might try to do that. Alot of issues like these were fixed with service pack 2 for windows XP. Hope this able to help you.

Boris
Is this drive a new addition or have you had it and this just started?
Have you changed your OS?
Make sure you have all of the service packs for your OS.
If you have 2 optical drives try setting this 1 as slave and the other as master.
Update your firmware to the latest version at this link.The 112 series is about half way down.

Will this burner work on dual layer discs?


Pioneer has released Firmware for the DVR-107D DVD Writer and DVR-A07XLA & XLB DVD Writer. This release # is 1.18.
http://www.pioneeraus.com.au/computer/firmware.html
(a ZIP file download, but uncompresses to an .EXE, as does theflashman.rpc1.org site download. I can't uncompress the EXEs with Stuffit (standard) Expander v7.0x here, but Scott said he used version 8.0.2 )
Looks like we are getting closer to Dual Layer Support:
(although some have flashed NEC ND-2500A drives to DL 2510 model firmware, I doubt that Pioneer will release an official firmware update for the 107D to add dual-layer burning. Like other mfrs, I suspect they'll sell a new drive model with DL burning support.)
    For Models DVR-107D FW Version 1.18
  • DVD-R Writability Improvement
  • +R Writability Improvement
  • DVD-RAM Playability Improvement
  • CD Playability Improvement
  • +R DL DoubleLayer Playback Implemented (NOT Record)

    For Models DVR-A07XLA, DVR-A07XLB, DVR-107AXL & DVR-107BXL FW Version 1.18
  • DVD-R Writability Improvement
  • +R Writability Improvement
  • DVD-RAM Playability Improvement
  • CD Playability Improvement
  • +R DL DoubleLayer Playback Implemented (NOT Record)

PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-112D won't burn discs. G4, OS 10.4.11


So the driver is either 'malfunctioning' or it's broken...do 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

My dvd burneer wont reconise dvd and dvd_rw discs


Check the blank disks in another computer if you can in case they are damaged and causing a fatal error when your computer tries to read them, and the reboot.

Are you sure it's SCSI and not SATA as scsi isn't very common these days especially on desktop type PC's? Where are you looking to see if the driver is correct?
If the drive is displaying and can be accessed from your operating system then it should be working fine.
