Pioneer 115's require a special firmware to allow the drive trays to eject far enough so that the robot can drop the discs into the tray cleanly. The firmware for the 115 can be found at http://www.primera.com/downloads/support/DriveFirmware/DriveFirmware.html. Hopefully this should fix your problem.

I had the same problem as yours before. What I did was I replaced the original dvd drive of my dvd player with a dvd drive of a pc and it worked but It would entirely depend on what kind of connector your dvd player has. Mine had the standard IDE connector that's why I was able to replace it with another dvd drive from a pc.
The factory says that you cannot change the drive from a CD drive to a DVD drive yourself. Although you can physically make the change, they indicate that the motherboard needs to be modified or changed in order to switch from CD to DVD. That's why they get $400 to make the upgrade. They don't provide any parts to do this, either, because I'm sure it wouldn't be a trivial change.
I have the same problem. Has anyone found a solution? I have an HP Notebook dv6700 with a Pioneer DVDRW [DVR-K17B ATA Device]. For the past few months I haven't been able to burn anything to disc. I can't find any firmware updates online. I'm not sure if I need to buy a new drive?
