I just bought this dvd writer yesterday and when trying to use it today I found out that it reads cd's and burns them too but when inserting a dvd,if it's already copied it could read it and run it but if it's a new one it doesn't read it.I tried three different brands of dvd's.Is it something of the software or is the Pioneer DVR-111D defective,pls?
I think you're saying that if you put a blank DVD in, it won't show anything in Explorer?
That's normal. Until you burn something, you'll get weird errors if you try to double-click on the drive. You need to use a program like Nero or Easy Media Creator (or whatever came with the drive) to put something on it. Those programs should correctly recognize it as blank.
