[qanda]This thread is about the Pioneer DVR-105 / DVR-A05. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I recently worked on a womanâ€™s computer, long story short â€“ her CD-ROM drive was junk, so knowing that she probably couldnâ€™t afford a new one I took the second drive (which I never used) out of my PC and put it in her computer and sent it home with her.
It seems that without that secondary drive installed my DVD recorder (Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-105) will not burn anything.
It goes through the ritual (noise, lights, etc.) and appears to be burning, but afterwards the disc remains blank.
Did some searching (on this forum) and learned that it was probably a jumper issue, so I looked at the drive and the jumper is set on â€˜masterâ€™ it is also on the ribbon labeled master. I changed the jumper to â€˜cable selectâ€™, but it made no difference.
Keep in mind that it worked fine with the 2nd drive present. Any more ideas?
