DVD R burnt by pioneer drive couldn't be read by itself.
I have Pioneer DVD RW (DVR 110D) drive. It works good for all disk types except DVD R disks. It reads the dvds written on other computers but fails to read the dvds written by itself. The disk written on this drive are readable on other computers but not on it.
I think that this problem is due to some compatibility issues between the disk and the drive. If it is, then please suggest the DVD R type which can be used with my drive, or any other solutions?

Re: DVD R burnt by pioneer drive couldn't be read by...
If there were compatability issues with the disc it would have been unable to burn to the dvd initially, the problems you mention are a sign that the reading in the dvd is failing and there's never a solution for problems as these, as it means that a replacement is needed, as the dvd writer arent worth repairing.
I had the same thing exactly, but after a while it wouldnt even acknowledge that i had a writable dvd in the drive, but was ok with cd's.
I think it is down to poor quality lasers, so as to keep the dvd writer prices down.

You can try and clean the lazer and the 2 chrome rails that the lazer moves along as it reads the disk.To clean the lazer use get some Isopropanol from your local chemist.Use a cotton bud NOT SOAKED with a small amount of Isopropanol and gently clean the glass using a circular motion and and polish with a clean and dry cotton bud.To clean the rails use special fine machine oil. Do not use WD40 as it contains water.Hope this helps you. Regards Bill
i have the same problem ,but when i restart my pc ,i put the disk it can read without a doult .The problem is your disk drive can't read disk when it on windows mode ,using dos and it just fine,some kind of trouble appear cause i burn too much disk in a time and it can't read next time i open computer .May be your windows problem just restart wins then put the disk in ,if it appear the green light it mean it's reading then the green light off it's mean it had identify the disk and does read it
yes your quite correct, starforce once installed can damage the fimware more so for multi writers, a common problem will be slower recording speeds.
It can even damage the hardware itself and render the writer totally useless.
If your getting to that stage, for the price of a new writer, it's not worth the worry, replacing the drive is the only answer.
