Did you solve problem with the RCA DVD/Recorder?

Hello Ziggy1. My name is Robert. I think you can upgrade the Firmware on this unit so it will use the current blank DVDs, I think these are 16x ? I also have this player and would like to upgrade mine. I thought I would need to call RCA and find out how to download new Firmware and then write it to a DVD and then run it on the player to upgrade the Firmware? What do you think?

    Operating System? I am talking about an RCA DVD Recorder model DRC-8295. It is a little older and will only allow recording to 8x (slower) blank DVDs. But, I believe I can download new firmware to my pc... write it on a dvd... and then run it on the DVD recorder in order to upgrade the firmware on the device. This way allowing use of blank DVDs 16x, I think, that are available for sale. The slower DVDs are not even available to purchase anymore, I think. Any advice?

    For an objective look at your machines capabilities

    Try search these reveiw links,

    I found the were many questions on the subject of dvd recorders and I also read a couple of the better reveiws on your machine,

    The links cover many issues and how to deal with them,

    the firmware update may only be available from the manufacturer,

    maybe another models' drivers will give you the functionality,

    so many models around have update sites that seem to be difficult to navigate thru to the correct spot to get what your looking for,

    As far as the disk type should be DVD+R/RW

    some work better than others but I was basing my brandfindings on Verbatim disk,

    I've used for back up disks for customers lots over the years,

    they work nice and are a reasonable price too.

    Hope this helps,

If you were flashing the firmware with an upgrade, and it lost power, there is probably no way to recover the system without taking it to a technician.

Dvd recorder won't play disc

your recorder will normally give you 5 changes at different regions, and on the last region change that is the one that it stays on, although if you you have never changed the region go to> my computer>right click on your dvd drive>properties and on the hardware tab, your hard drive and dvd drive will show, highlight your dvd drive and click properties and click the dvd regions tab and look at the region to see wot its set at, if you still have 5 changes, it should be set at your region one, if there are no changes left you need to search and download a region free dvd programme to allow any region dvd to be played programme

My DVR RW is not unable to read any DVD or CD. It cant read CD even while booting via bootable disc. The imae icon appears in the Explorer, but it cant read the discs.


the fault is from the lens (laser) of your drive, that's why its not reading discs. The lens is weak such that it cannot load discs.

How long have you been using this drive? I think its high time you got another one.

Good luck.

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
