sometimes it depends on what kind of dvd-r you buy because they have DVD+R DVD-R DVD-DL ect it might also depend on the brand of the dvd-r most of the time the more exspencive ones work better Like sony or memorex
Yes you can when playing the DVD on a computer, there are softwares that switch your DVD-ROM region to suit your DVD and so you can play it, well before i give you links to the site providing such a software let me first check the legality of such softwares.
The manual likely is at the Pioneer website. But why do you need it? These drives stick in your computer pretty easily, and only function if you have a good DVD burning program installed. Did it come with an installation CD? Your burning program may be on that. If you run into trouble, just call Pioneer--they owe it to you.
You need to check to see if the dvd drive is set to digital playback because it is probably trying to find your on board AC97 - 5.1 digital output. With a music CD it doesn't have to be connected digitially because it uses analog for stereo playback but most DVD's - if a movie - are set to playback in digital. Open 'My Computer', right click on your DVD drive, select properties, select hardware, highlight your DVD drive, click on properties, then properties again, check- Enable digital CD audio for this CD-ROM device.
