I hope this is the right place to post this, After I installed my 112D and did the firmware update 1.09 now in my computer my 112 shows up as a Zip 250 with the Zip icon, however I do have a zip drive 250 on my computer showing up as a removable disk though, I have disconnected them and installed 1 at a time with no luck, think the firmware update did this ? had no disk in either drive when I did the firmware up date to the 112

Jaminsd -

Have ensured you have your Pioneer DVR-112D connected to an Ultra DMA (80-Conductor) IDE Cable and the Master/Slave jumper is correctly set. The below Web Link provides detailed information ->

If you have confirmed that your Pioneer DVR-112D is connected to an Ultra DMA (80-Conductor) IDE Cable and the Master/Slave jumper is correctly set suggest though Device Manager removing your both your Zip Drive and Pioneer DVR-112D and rebooting and allowing your Zip Drive and Pioneer DVR-112D to be reinstalled during the rebooting procedure. If you are unaware of how to do this proceed as follows -> Navigate to Settings/Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manage. Once in Device Manager navigate to Disk Drives and select your Zip Drive and Right Click on your Zip Drive and select Uninstall. Then navigate to DVD/CD-ROM Dive and select your DVR-112D and Uninstall. Then turn off your computer as normally and wait a few seconds then restart your Computer. Your Zip Driver and Pioneer DVR-112D should now be correctly recognized.

BJKG thanks for the response, yes I have done all that, what I have now is the correct icon for the 112 but instead of showing DVD-RW it’s still showing Zip 250, the drive works ok though, need to find away to rename it. I removed all the omega software and just let xp load it as removable disk. Thats when I got the correct icon for the 112 but not the correct name :sad:

Tried uninstalling it and reinstalling burner, that didn’t work, uninstalled Pri IDE channel reinstalled ,which it’s hooked up to and that didn’t work so I then ran CHKDSK and then ran SCAN DISK and after finished I checked and everything was back to normal, go figure huh :confused:

ZIP drive configurations have a nasty habit of sticking around long after the ZIP drive has been removed. When I used to use ZIPS, I would never install any Iomega software and I never had further problems.
