Hi all

I`ve just bought my first DVD writer, a Pioneer 111D. Now in the bios this is defined as a pioneer DVD writer, in the system hardware it is described as a “LE3113Z PCO815L SCSI CdRom Device”. Using my brothers nero, when I try drive info it sees it as a DVD rom with no writing capabilities.

Im using Windows XP on a Shuttle XPC SN41G ( I think its a G2 although this doesnt matter ) when I connected the drive I think it was an 80 wire cable, I connected it to the black connector as a master. In the bios it says the DVD writer is connected as a secondary master.

Thanks

I doubt that.
How it is connected?

Thanks for your reply Chef.

I doubt that.
How it is connected?

Doubt what?

I connected it to the ide cable, the black plug not the grey one. I thought the black plug was the master.

Thanks in advance.

What I’ve highlighted in the quoted post…

Is it connected internally or externally?


#5

Sorry I didn`t understand what you meant, its connected internally.


#6

And properly jumpered & connected?

It must run in UDMA4 mode to function properly.
Check that in Devicemanager, also under IDE channels.


#7

I selected master on the back of the drive. I think the motherboard is jumperless.

In device manager it doesnt mention UDMA4 anywhere. Under the secondary IDE channel advanced settings it , Ive changed it to autoselect although under the current transfer mode it says “Not Applicable”


#8

It needs UDMA4. What chipset is on the mobo, SIS, nvidia, intel???


#9

Its an NVIDIA chipset


#10

But it runs with micro$oft IDE drivers?

But it runs with micro$oft IDE drivers?

I don`t know what you mean, How can I tell?


#12

You can see it in Devicemanager, drive properties.


#13

OK, both IDE contoller and the DVD writer are using MS drivers.


#14

Then uninstall all IDE channels, restart and check for DMA again.

WAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY

Thanks Chef,after deleting the ide controller and restarting it recognized my Pioneer DVD 111D ( device manager and Nero)

Now it lists two devices ( device manager ) as DVD/CD-ROM devices, my PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-111D and LE3113Z PCO815L SCSI CdRom Device. I don`t know what this means,as my writers now working maybe I should forget about it.

Chef, thats eight replies from you and I`m now sorted, thats some workrate with you posting on other threads, so Thanks again.

Nice that it worked.

I don’t know what the other thing is, maybe just an virtual drive or something similar…
