Re: pioneer dvr-106D cant read dvd's

look at the dvd's... is the lead-in part of the disk a little bit too large?
If it is then it means the dvd cannot see it's own lead-in... and that is the problem. Normally it should be maximum 2 mm in width

Re: pioneer dvr-106D cant read dvd's

Do you have any software like Alcohol 120% or Daemon Tools installed?

BTW, welcome to the forum

Re: pioneer dvr-106D cant read dvd's

OK, try this: uninstall Daemon Tools, reboot, and try reading the disc again

Hopefully that should work - Daemon Tools can cause some strange disc access problems

Re: pioneer dvr-106D cant read dvd's

Does it still burn DVDs? And can it read others DVDs?

Re: pioneer dvr-106D cant read dvd's

OK, that's good; it means that the DVD laser still works, and the drive is probably OK

Try another burn now that you've uninstalled Daemon Tools, then try to read the disc.

Re: pioneer dvr-106D cant read dvd's

I'd try DVD, since that's what you said you were having problems with.

Re: pioneer dvr-106D cant read dvd's

Did you restart your PC after uninstalling Daemon Tools?

Also, can you download Nero InfoTool, run it, and post the results here - it will ask you to save the results as a text file.

Just click the little floppy icon, and save the file as a text file.

Then open it up, and copy and paste the results into your post.

This would make no sense. If it can burn DVDs, it can read them too.
Burn with verify and you will see what I mean.

Please edit your post, remove serial numbers.

Also update Nero (!!!) if you use Nero.

Hmmm, could be this that's causing the problem:

Re: pioneer dvr-106D cant read dvd's

Updating Nero would certainly do no harm, and it would rule that out as a possible cause.
