i just bought a pioneer 110d and installed it, it can read disks but it cant write, whenever i try to burn a disk i always get errors no matter what speed, also my dvd rom isnt being detected in bios and in device manager it says the dvd rom is generic but its really a liteon ltd-166s
You must use a 80wire UDMA IDE cable.
im using the cable from my new dfi nf3 ultra agp (939 socket)
wouldnt that be the wire your talking about
i tried unplugging the dvd-rom and just using the dvd-rw and it burnt normal but how come it doesnt let me burn with the dvd-rom installed???
It seems to me that it’s a jumper related issue… You should try to configurate the dvd burner as master and the dvd-rom as slave.
thats the way it is already
when i have the dvd rom plugged in it doesnt detect the dvd rom and i can use the dvdrw to read or write???
Please would you post your system specs
Try a new cable, even if it’s new. Try a new jumper in the DVDROM and/or the writer. Try changing the position of each drive on the cable (put the ROM in the middle position and the writer on the end and vice-versa). Make sure the longer segment of the cable is the end that is plugged into the motherboard. Finally, remove all IDE controller drivers on your system (ie - the nVidia package… reinstall without the IDE drivers) and use the default MS-provided set.

Quote from my other thread on 109 issues!
Some of this is off topic, but you will need it later when new FW comes out!
"Please check out the other threads to make sure you have the 109 installed correctly! The 109 is a very nice unit!
Things to check!
- 80 pin cable
- some mobos will not do any FW flash without the dvr program
- some systems will not do a flash without a blank disk in the tray
- will not perform correctly on some IDE PCI cards.
- on and on and on
And oh yes it is a pain in the butt, but a fine drive once crossflashed to a A09XL."
Make sure you have the correct drive selected in dvrupdate. Also use the 1.57 A09 FW!
Re: Pioneer 109 Burning Speed Increase
You have not crossflashed if the quiet drive utility does not show. Check the other threads out!
- Once I cross flashed it was a perfect drive.
From the Pioneer 109 forum
Download the 109v1.57 firmware
Extract the files and delete the Pioneer upgrade (UPGR109.exe). You will be left with 2 files, R9100009.157 & R9100109.157.
Download DVRupdate 0.9
Extract DVRupdate 0.9.exe to the same folder as the 2 files above.
Run DVRupdate 0.9 and do the following:
- Select your drive from the ‘Device’ drop down box
- Select the Kernel file by clicking the folder icon to the right of the ‘Kernel’ field. The correct file will automatically be selected if you have run DVRupdate from the same folder as the R9100009.157 & R9100109.157 files.
- Select the Normal file by clicking the folder icon to the right of the ‘Normal’ field. The correct file will automatically be selected if you have run DVRupdate from the same folder as the R9100009.157 & R9100109.157 files.
- Click ‘Start’
The operation takes about a minute. Exit DVRupdate.
