Sorry if there is any mistake, but I’m a 1st time user.
I have a similar issue to one under “Pioneer DVR-111D looks like a reader only”
I installed the Pioneer DVR -111D (internal drive) today and initially my PC (Windows XP) identified it as a ROM only drive. My BIOS identifies it correctly as a RW drive. I followed the instructions on the above thread
- Checked DMA and it was correct. The transfer mode under primary IDE Channel is DMA with Mode 5 and transfer mode under secondary IDE is DMA with transfer mode as “Not Applicable”
- Flashed the firmware The Dangerous Bros. external firmware for the Pioneer 111 series.
After doing this my PC is now identifying this as a DVD-RAM Drive and BIOS identifying it as Pioneer DVR - 111L.
Can you please help me rectify this and get the PC to identify it as DVD RW
