    Pioneer DVR is not being recognized
    Hello all,

    I have read previous posts before but this is my first posting.

    I bought a Pioneer DVR-122 a couple years ago to use as a dedicated burner so I did not wear out my computers burner.

    I am currently burning 100 dvd's from IDVD.

    when i used to put a dvd in the pioneer a finder window would pop up and ask me what i wanted to do with it. Now when I put a DVD in I get nothing.

    I do not think it is being recognized. I do not think I need a Pioneer driver because it uses one already in the IMAC.

    I thought it was just the IDVD program but i hit the control button when I hit the burn key, to let me choose a drive and the pioneer does not come up.

    does anyone have any ideas. I have Mac OS X 10.6.5

    thank you david

    G'day and welcome to the forums.

    Go into Apple System Profiler )About this M<ac) and see if the burner is recognised. Sounds like the DVR-122 has failed and this can happen if you have burned many discs from it. In the meantime try cleaning the lens with a proprietary cleaner.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Great. May still pay to give it a clean.
