DVD-RW not recognising blank disk

Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-111D This drive can read & write CDs and it will play DVDs, but will not recognize a blank DVD in the drive. I have updated, uninstalled, reinstalled, and rolled over the driver. I have used a DVD Identifier which recognizes there is a blank disk in the drive. It will prompt me to use a program on plug-n-play. I have tried both DVD-/+R. XP and my Roxio CD DVD creator do not recognize that there is a blank disk in the drive. What can I do next??? my driver(TEAC DVD+RW DV-W58E) can read blank cd but cannot read a blank dvd........what should i do.... please help me

My laptop's DVD player (Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-K17KL) won't read or write DVDs but will play CD audios. Is this a hardware or software problem?


It could be a wrong burning software, try out Nero, but my experience is that usualy these things are dieing this way, first they won't write dvd than won't even read later they are even haveing troubles with cds.
If that's the case than it's time to use your warranty if you have any left, or if you don't but you want to fix it than just bring it to the local laptop repair center and they'll change it for you for 30-60 GBP+ their services or just buy one at ebay and do it yourself, but in that case double check what you are ordering, or ask the seller about compatibility.

I need pioneer dvr-215bk dvd rom drivers


dvd roms do not need drivers they are a standard format drive and should be recognised by your pc immediately.

in order to play DVDs you will however need a Software DVD player like WINDVD or POWER DVD

DVD-RWs do not need drivers but may require that the CD burning software that you use may need updating.

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.

DVD-RW drive burns music CDs and DVDs, but not data CDs


Alright. Seems like Windows, for some reason, doesn't think your drive is able to burn things when trying to deal with this kind of disc.

I'll need further information, like if you use another program to burn music CDs, and what other things might have changed the registry settings. I know of a fix that resolves issues with the Windows version of data CD burning, but it only applies to CD-R and CR-RW drives..
