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

Pioneer DVR-112D disc recognition

I have two new drives. One I insert a disc, under "My Computer" it recognizes that a disc has been inserted, however, I cannot access anything on either a DVD or CD-Rom. It shows 0 bytes. We initially had the drives on cable select. We changed that to master/slave. Now one drive works sometimes and the other, although it shows up in My Computer, it doesn't recognize any discs. Help!

    I am running Windows XP. That was the first thing I tried. The problem was a software issue. I uninstalled Roxio software that was recently installed and the drives work now without any problems.

    My DVR-112d won't recognize movie rental DVDs when inserted. My jumpers are set to Master for the DVR-112d and Slave for my other DVD burner. I have no Roxio software on my computer. The OS is win xp. I tried loading the latest drivers for both burners and it didn't help. I've always had problems with this computer(Dell Dimension 8200) recognizing disks.

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

Installed new Pioneer DVR-112D

 Are you using an 80-conductor type ribbon cable? The new drive requires 80-conductor cable. Plus, you may need to switch the jumper on the back of the DVR drive to CS.

I just found your motherboard specs
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?product=396434&lang=en&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&docname=c00063272

It uses SATA and Ultra DMA (80-conductor).
Is the jumper set to master?? You may need to pull the jumper off and see if the DVR drive works with it off.

My dvd burneer wont reconise dvd discs

This is correct, as there is no TOC on a blank disk there is nothing to read. it is your writing software that identifies blank media when inserted, so you may wish to check your software is appropriate for your requirements Cheers :D
