Pioneer DVR-111D won't do DVD+R media?

Greetings all,

We just bought Pioneer DVR-111D drives for our backup system.
Works great using DVD-Rs.

But, we just tried DVD+R media (single side, single layer) and the drives do not recognise the media.

We updated to 1.29 firmware, but that did not help.

The specs indicate these drives should do DVD+R disks - is there some other issue I should be aware of?

Has anyone here succeeded in using DVD+Rs on the DVR-111D ?

thanks
Quentin.

Ah,
it’s OK.

The drive handles DVD+R just fine.

Turns out our backup program (Dantz Retrospect) does not handle that drive with DVD+Rs unless we upgrade Retrospect. Dang it.
