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???
HP disc not being recognised in drive and not recording files to a dvd-rw why not

Download Free Easy CD DVD Burner and
follow the on-screen directions to install the software. Note: Free Easy CD DVD Burner is completely free and fully
functional. However, there are some accompanying programs that it asks
you to install - feel free to decline those if you're not interested.
Free Easy CD DVD Burner supports Windows 7, Vista, XP, and 2000.
Insert a blank CD or DVD in your drive.
Open the Free Easy CD DVD Burner program.
Click on the Copy CD/DVD button on the tool bar at
the top of the program window.
Under the Action menu on the left, click the Burn
an image file link.
When the Select the image file that you want to burn
window opens, locate and select the ISO file you wish to burn to the
empty disc and then click Open.
A dialog box will appear asking "Do you want to burn
[your chosen ISO file]?".
Click OK to confirm.
The burning process will automatically begin. The time it takes to
burn will depend on the size of the ISO file and the speed of both your
PC and your CD or DVD burner.
When the burning is complete, the CD or DVD will
automatically eject from the drive. You can remove the disc and close
Free Easy CD DVD Burner.
If you view the contents of the disc, you might notice many
files and folders. So what happened to the ISO file? Remember that the
ISO file is just an image of what should be on the CD or DVD. That ISO
file contained the information for all of the files you see on the disc.
You must have a CD or DVD
burner to write ISO files to CDs or DVDs. You will not be able to burn
ISO files if you only have a standard CD or DVD drive.
We have had out Toshiba P25-S509 for a very long time. It's a great laptop and watching DVDs with a wide screen was great; That is, until the CD/DVD player was no longer recognized by the computer. We took it in (still under warranty) to have it fixed, only to not work again after a couple of months.
Now YEARS have gone by and I have bought another Toshiba (M305D-S4831) which is great unless you try to reboot and it doesn't fully start up. That's for another review, not this one... So, back to the P25-S509 and YEARS later. We just received two 1GB memory cards, which are being used to replace the "stock" two 256 MB memory cards. Well, the computer is MUCH FASTER and THE DVD PLAYER FINALLY WORKS!!! Woo-Hoo! $98.00 investment in memory cards saved up from ditching the older Toshiba.
Hope this review helps someone out there that might have had the same problem.
The hard disk is not recognized from USB because of SATA drivers not present on XP setup disk.
That happens because the BIOS uses a SATA controller that is not included in Windows XP install disk.
Usually you can solve the problem going to BIOS settings and changing SATA/RAID settings.Check your BIOS settings, and disable SATA RAID mode.This is done in different ways depending on the BIOS.
On HP/Compaq computers for example you press F2 on startup to enter BIOS, then disable SATA mode on bios settings.
On other makes the procedure can be slightly different.
Another way to fix the problem, is by creating your own XP setup disk with SATA drivers included, see: Resolving "Setup did not find any hard disk drives" during Windows .
