Need the model number of the drive not just the name. The picture looks like a Laptop DVD/RW. The matter of it working is the connection type. First of all you need a sata burner.

PIONEER BURNER BURNING BUT DISC EMPTY
What OS and disc brand and type are you using? Try a different brand; some disc manufacturers seem to make more "coasters" than others. If you are not using RW(rewritable) discs, make sure to cancel the autoplay "Format disc" option for blank discs in most Windows OS versions. I chose to turn off autoplay.
I hope this helps.
(Yes I made a few coasters. So far I've found that Verbatim DVD +R DL discs are good. CDs are fine with most brands. However, other reviewers say that the plant where the optical discs were made matters.)

I can not get my
Try this :
control panel :
performance and maintenance :
computer management :
device manager Click the + that opens up
Double click on the one you are having problems with and insert your
installation disc then update driver. If you haven't got the disc then
search online for update driver and then the name of the one in
question. There will be a few websites where you will be able to
download the updates without an installation disc.

My PIONEER DVDRW DVR-K15 ATA Device read cd no DVD
have you had any virus infections? I would download malware bytes and rootkit revealer to see if you have any viruses or rootkits you should email me at email@example.com
and you might have a rootkit that is causing issues with the dvd read/write. otherwise a failing device.
you could also burn puppylinux on a cd, run it and see if you can pop in a dvd and see if it reads the media. if so you are looking at a windows software file or virus issue.

Pioneer dvd r/rw wont play a dvd
If your computer recognizes a disc in the drive and operates normally, Id assume you would need a DVD player or codec to be able to actually watch the DVD. PowerDVD rings a bell.
Have you tired that? I know Windows Media Player by default wont let you watch a movie without first downloading a codec.

Pioneer dvd-rw dvr k15ra
Imy burner will burn if I go into MY COMPUTER than into MY E drive but the auto burn will not work. I do have 1dvd click and ashampoo on the computer as well, but when I put a disc into the computer it will not automtically work. I was wondering if the above programs are stopping the auto play on it or what? The burner works fine if I go to the E drive and install o burn it that way, is there some kind of a setting or something that went out of wack??

Pioneer DVDRW DVR-K15
You need to uninstall the device driver for you IDE controller and then let windows to a hardware detect and reinstall. I have had this problem before with my compaq laptop and the pioneer K15 DVD drive.

Pioneer DVR-K15 Not Doing DVD's
These drives, remarkably, don't need drivers to work, just a good non-microsoft burner, so your burning program may be corrupt. If you don't know what burning program you have,
I recommend downloading Belarc Advisor, a free program which not only tells you everything in your
computer, with model numbers for hardware and all of your software
(with their unique codes), and will also inform you if you are
missing any needed Windows updates.
Once you know what you have, if it came with the computer, you have
to seek an upload at the computer manufacturer's website, as it may
be a special program not related to the burning software purchased
from the software manufacturer---go to their website for upgrades.
Also, check device manager in control panel under hardware to see if you
have a problem with anything (a big yellow check) to fix.
