Pioneer DVR-R100 Problems

#1

not sure how to explain my problem well, but I’ll try. I’ve had my DVR-R100 for over a month and it’s picky about when it wants to work it seems. I’ve been able to burn DVD’s and CD’s before but for a few days now when I insert blank media the drive doesn’t recognize there’s something in there, and when I try to use Nero to burn a DVD or CD the button to start burning is faded out and I can’t click it. I also use DVD Decrypter and when I install blank DVD media I get an (Incompatible medium Installed) error over and over again. It’s the same kind of blank DVD I’ve been using sense I bought the thing, any advice?


#2

Open up Nero, select the burner as target.
Then try a burn, even a simulation, and post the logfile here.


#3

Thats the thing I can’t, the computer realizes a drive is there and all, it doesn’t even read any dvd/cd I put in there… it just idles never showing whats been put in. when I add files I want to burn to a data dvd, and I get to the final step in nero express the burn button is faded out, so I can’t burn, not even a simulation will work. DVD decrypter on the other hand gives me this…

now, it says incompatible medium installed, does that refer to the dvd i’m using? It also happens with CDs… I just plain can’t burn anything at all :a


#4

Does it make a weird noise when trying to read cd or dvd media?


#5

Yes, it just started last night.


#6

Then it’s damaged hardware.
You only could use it as spare parts…


#7

Ugh, that sucks. I’ll see if I can return it… not sure how it got damaged, can you think of any explanation? I mean I installed it myself and it was working fine for a few weeks, what could’ve happened?


#8

Maybe it has something to do with PSU .
Anyway hardware [B]do[/B] fail sometimes . :doh:


#9

Okay, get this… i was able to get a replacement drive, a DVR-710 (they didn’t have DVR-R100’s in stock anymore). Guess what, it does the EXACT same thing, the same error, and it wont recognize CDs or DVDs. Whats PSU?

EDIT: Okay, this drive is reading media now at least, I inserted a movie (the matrix reloaded) and it recognizes it, yet it wont run it. when I double click the dvd drive in my computer with the DVD in it I get an error it says “D:\ is not a valid win32 application” when its any other DVD it gives me something like “Windows can not find install.exe” im gonna pull my hair out in anger here folks, hee :sad:


#10

Install a proper dvd player software…


#11

Everything was in place on this comp. The DVD burner that I had before (the DVR-R100) worked fine for a good month or so, then it just started being picky about when it would work, then it stopped altogether, I also have all the right software for playing music and movies installed already, so why it won’t play a movie or cd when it’s inserted is beyond me, and it’s just with the burning drive. I have another regular DVD read only drive that works fine, insert some movie or music media and the appropriate software starts without a hitch.

It’s just kinda puzzling that even though I have a new drive it’s doing the same thing for something I thought was a broken drive. I guess I’ll just go take it to get looked at. Thanks anyway.

AUTOPLAY - and you won’t enable it, no one sane would do these days.
