    I had Toast 6, and it worked fine on my Pioneer DVR-112 for the last couple of years.

    I just upgraded to Toast 9 Titanium, and it's now rejecting almost all the blank DVD-Rs that I try to record to.

    "Please insert blank media."

    But I know the spindle of Verbatim DVD-Rs ARE blank, and good quality.

    Going back to Toast 6 works fine. It's just Toast 9 that complains.

    Any ideas?

    Dual G4 1.25GHz, 2 GB RAM, OSX 10.4.11, Pioneer DVR-112, Verbatim 16x DVD-R media

    I'd also check to see if there are any updates to Toast itself and the drive's firmware.

    Yes, I have the latest Toast.

    I'm not sure how to get/install the latest firmware for the Pioneer 112...

    I have a pioneer 112 using toast 9.0.2
    I have no problems with any dvd's I just burned through a 50 spindle of memorex -r. Now on a pack of verbatim -r x16. I have also recently used some cheap officemax -r.

    Is your OS X up to date. I do remember having some trouble with 10.5.2.

    Are you inserting the blank disk when toast is open? I know if you do insert the disk with toast active it wont show up in your desktop. Try inserting a blank disk and let it show up in your desktop before you opening toast.

    I'm using a dual G4 and 10.4.11 (up to date)

    Toast is already open, so none of the blank DVD-Rs I load show up on the desktop or bring up the "mount it?" dialogs.

    Can you burn disks from your finder, your desktop?

    Yes, I have no trouble burning DVD-Rs (the ones rejected by Toast 9) from the desktop AND from Toast 6.

    Only Toast 9 complains "Please insert a recordable disc" for perfectly good discs.

    Sometimes, if I try again, Toast 9 then accepts the DVD-R, sometimes not.
