My Pioneer DVR-A09XLA will read CD’s but not DVD’s. When I put a DVD in, it just clicks. I’ve got the latest firmware installed and I’m not sure why it’s doing what it does.
What is the Media MID (Manufacture ID and Media Code) (Example: TYG02) of the DVD Media you are attempting to use? To obtain the Media MID (Manufacture ID and Media Code) (Example: TYG02) of the DVD Media you are attempting to use suggest using a utility program similar to DVDInfo (http://www.dvdinfopro.com).
I’m unable to check what the MID of the DVD is with the program you recommended because the Drive won’t recognize that there’s a DVD Disc in there (any kind, dvd movie, dvd data disc etc).
If this info is of any use to anyone, here’s what the program had to say about the drive.
What kind of DVDs did you try with?
Did you try to boot from a bootable DVD?
