Question about Pioneer DVR-112D DVD RW Dual Layer Burner

Pioneer DVR-112D refuses to read CDs?

Replaced CDR drive in my G4 Dual 1.25 GHz by DVR-112D, used Patchburn to be able to use iDVD, works like a charm. I read an wrote a lot of DVD's, everything fine. Today I discovered I cannot read cdrom or audio cd. Are there any known issues with settings of hardware and software which may cause this failure? Should I consider the drive broken? -- Grinnikend door het leven... My Pioneer DVR-112D wont read a second DVD/CD that I insert into the drive. If I want to insert mutiple DVD/CDs to search for a file among my backup disks, I have to restart the machine before looking at every different DVD/CD. I have upgraded the driver, without success. It started doing this about 6 months ago - the computer is 1 year old.

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
