DVR-112D wont read CD

Hi all,
I have a DVR-112D DVD burner.
It burns DVD discs no problem.
But no matter what CD I put in, it will not see any of them.

I have put in CD-R, CD+R with same result.

I read that the DVR-112D will read these discs?

If so then why dont it?

I have upgraded the firmware to 1.22

TIA,

Mike.

Re: DVR-112D wont read CD

Will it burn CDR?

Try this: put you OS CD in the drive, and try to boot from it (you may need to change the boot sequence in the BIOS so the DVD drive is first).

If it doesn't boot from the CD, it's the drive. If it does, you have a problem with your OS.

Re: DVR-112D wont read CD

Ok this is what I just done.
I went into the BIOS and changed it to see the DVD as master.

It did not see the boot OS disk, so I changed it back so the CD RW was master and that saw the boot CD as usual.
I have a DVD rw and a CD rw as its the only way I can burn both DVD and CD to use both.

It looks like the DVR 112D is faulty but it does see all DVD discs and does burn all types of DVD discs.

I was hoping I could put the matter right.
I may have to get a combo drive to do both.

Thanks for your advice bye the way.

Oh yes and my OS is XP pro with all updates and I also use Linux/Ubuntu 7.10 on a seperate HD and the DVR-112D is the same on that OS to.



Mike.

Re: DVR-112D wont read CD

Hi
Welcome onboard swifty240.
Pioneer drives are a bit fussy with regards to their setting.
Your 112D needs to the Master drive, with your CD drive as the slave.
There's a possibility that if your Pioneer is set to Slave. It is the reason you are having problems.
So make sure on your IDE cable (not just bios, which you shouldn't now need to play with) that the 112D is Master.
Good luck.

Re: DVR-112D wont read CD

Check to see the manufacturing date (month) of your drive. A lot of Pioneer DVR-112 series drives manufactured before March 2007 have problems with reading/writing CDs.

Your date confuses me. First of all it's not manufactured in 2001. Second, do you mean January or July 2007?

You'll need to remove the drive and look at the label on it.

Hi
I think that's a typo.
It should be (if I am right) 01 (the day) 07 (the month) & 2007 (the year).
Edit: Just checked a couple of Pioneer's & the date bit should read something like
MFD. AUG 2007
There are 2 barcodes on the left of the label this date info is in between them.
From a 111

Re: DVR-112D wont read CD

Yes you are correct the MFD is December 2006
I have set it to Master so its DVR-112D Master
and CD RW as Slave.
Now it will read Original CD discs and not copies.

So now I can read Original DVD, copied DVD and original CD discs.

Yes thank you for the switch to Master routine, I didn`t think that would matter but it does.

How strange the world of electronics is at times.

Because "CD+R" doesnt exist.........

What copies? Please be SPECIFIC and accurate.
Could be that they are cheap discs or bad burns............

Re: DVR-112D wont read CD

Right Ok.


I use a CD disc that I use Nero with to copy an original disc to a black CD-R disc.

After I put the copied CD-R disc into the DVR-112D it wont see it, but if I put the original CD disc in then the DVR-112D does see it.
And also the DVR-112D will not copy to discs like TDK CD-RW.

The other CD discs I have are Imation CD-R 52X, Morrison Home & Office CD-R, TDK CD-R80 52X, Verbatim CD-R 52X.

I can use them to copy via my CD RW no problem but if I insert a copied disc from the CD RW into the DVR-112D then the disc is not seen.
Only original CD discs are seen.

I have CD-RW discs such as TDK CD-RW 12x 10X, Verbatim CD-RW 16-24X,
Liteon CD-RW74 10x-24x, and an AOpen CD-RW 4x, 12x

And none of them can be used in the DVR-112D, only the CD-RW I have as slave.
I use mostly CD-RW for backups, and the other CD-R for MP3 or Photos and backup for my Amiga back up discs.

I have a few Maxell DVD-RW they of course work Ok in the DVR-112D.

I may disconnect the slave and see if the DVR-112D will be better as a matter of Interest just to see how it performs.

Oh yes the CD+R are DVD types that I am thinking of. I don`t have any of them.

Mike.


Well I just disconnected the CD-RW slave drive and same thing. Ohh yes just checked I have loads of Memorex DVD+R 16x discs.

I may in the end get another DVD burner I think, some thing that can actually handle the job DVD and CD.

Mike.

Re: DVR-112D wont read CD

There is no "CD+R" media!

If you have software like Alcohol and Daemon Tools installed, uninstall them.
