Question about Pioneer DVR-111D (DVR111DBK) DVD RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

My DVR-111D can't read some DVD's - and they aren't scratched

My brand new drive can't read some specific DVD's. Theese are fine discs, not some noname craps, but TDK. Whatsoever - it reads: "Windows system can't read this disc type. Disc may be broken, or it uses non windows-compatible format" - This message was previous in my mother language, so it's a little piece of translation. It would - probably - sound different in original english windows.

My desktop PC XP OS can detect TDK FDD-100 external floppy drive ,but cannot read files inside. How can I solve my problem?


The disc may be corrupted :( In most cases external floppy drives work just fine but the disc they are reading is old. Shelf life of floppies is really only 3 to 5 years. After that you really can't trust that you'll be able to read them. I've had discs up to 10 years old that I can still read, but others that are only a couple years old I can't. Try plugging the floppy into another PC to see if that one can read it. Recommend trying it on a newer PC (Windows 7 or 8)

I have a Tdk burner worked fine until my husband had his buddy install some other burning software now my burner doesn't read there's a cd in it and it keeps opening up...still looking for original tdk...


Installing different burning software should not really affect reading capabilities of the burner. Nevertheless, it is not recommended to have two burning software packages on the same computer.

You can try uninstalling the new software that was installed on your computer, the reboot the system and check if that worked. If Windows does not open the disc automatically, you can go to My Computer and access the disc by double clicking on the TDK drive.

If you continue to have the same problems, please make sure the DVD burner is connected properly to the computer.

Doesn't read disc


Glenn's answer is incomplete. I have the same machine. I am currently experiencing a similar problem. The machine reads cd's, vcd's, but it will not read dvd's. Commercially purchased dvd's. The problem is not a format problem, not a zone problem. The dvd's work in other machines, so it is not a dvd problem. If anyone has any ideas, please respond. Thank you.

Cd/dvd not recognising anything


check if you have connected the dvd/rom according to the specifications entered. if no then do it and check again if the player reads the disk. if the problem persists, and i you suspect its the manufacturer's error, then you can get a free replacement according to the warranty details

DVD is not being detected by combo drive


Hi Imran,
Sadly this is a fairly common problem with combo drives. In all likelihood, it will cost you more to have the drive repaired than to replace it.
I will suggest purchasing a dvd writer to replace the combo drive.
They are fairly inexpensive.

Trouble with DVD+RW Disks being compatiable or staying formatted


cos they are cheap - get some decent branded discs such as TDK or tayo yuden and it should be fine

Also check the manual and or requirements on there website and it should show which are the best discs to use for that player but TDK or tayo yuden should be fine.

www.svp.co.uk or any where you can buy discs from should be fine

DVD disc recording


Certain disc only work in certain recorders - I know this sound weird but you must find the disc that is compatible with the recorder that you are using. If the TDK discs is working continue to use the TDK discs. Even though the format and the specifications are the same on both disc, the readers does not read all disc.
