  Billy Brewer 00:18 06 Jan 2006

I replaced my cd burner with a Pioneer dvr-110d dvd r/rw. It reads and plays cds, however it does not recognise dvds. i downloaded drivers from poineer website however it still won't recognise dvds.

What kind of DVDs - blank, movies, games or all three (or more)?

  Billy Brewer 00:42 06 Jan 2006

Movies, TDK dvd+rw disk with files on it. When put in disk drive it says "blank cd"

Sounds like a dodgy drive - I'm no expert but from what I gather combo drives use different lasers for CD and DVD , perhaps one isn't working.
