Why does my lenovo insist on my having a cd rom when i have a dvd writer installed? how do I fix it so that computer recoognizes it?


I have the same situation. My computer has a
DVD-RW/CD-RW installed yet when it is empty, the computer simply recognizes it as a CD drive. However, it will automatically recognize any DVD I place in the drive. Even a blank DVD-R. So it's not really a problem for me.

Also, if you type in DEVICE MANAGER in your windows search area, it will show you all your computer's hardware and peripherals. I have Windows Vista 64 bit and in device manager it does recognize it as an ATAPI DVD under "DVD/CD-ROM DRIVES".

I haven't seen a DVD burner yet that won't play or write cd's; maybe this is standard.

I wouldn't worry about it as long as it performs the functions (play/burn DVD's?)

Hope this helps.8a17955.jpgb9e40e6.jpg

Norton 360 install has replaced/overridden DVD drive


Hi, I can certainly understand how you feel and hope I can help.

error 19 isnt necesarily a corrupt driver, it can be 2 drivers trying to use the same resource (as in norton's backup drive and your cd drive, for example)

Try this - Click the start button, right click on "Computer", select "Properties", then click "Device Manager" in the upper left hand corner.

Open the bit that says "CD/DVD Drives" and try right clicking on the drives there and selecting "Update Driver Software". This will probably do nothing. Don't worry, I didnt really expect it to. Now right click on the drives, and select "Delete" and then reboot. This will reset the drivers for ya.

This fix usually DOES work. Most of the time. If it doesnt work, try the ones below.

try a firmware update from Pioneers website for the DVD RW drive.

Pioneer dvd driver has stopped working


to go to system registry click on start>all programs>accessories>run then type regedit and press enter. Don't change anything unless you know what you are doing. It sounds as though it could be a driver problem though, try updating the driver from device manager. Right click the device and click on properties then update driver.
The only other solution would be to restore your computer to an earlier time when you know that the drive was working properly. Click on start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date when you know everything was working okay. I hope this helps.

DVD-RW drive burns music CDs and DVDs, but not data CDs


Alright. Seems like Windows, for some reason, doesn't think your drive is able to burn things when trying to deal with this kind of disc.

I'll need further information, like if you use another program to burn music CDs, and what other things might have changed the registry settings. I know of a fix that resolves issues with the Windows version of data CD burning, but it only applies to CD-R and CR-RW drives..

I have a 5 month old acer laptop that came with a dvd rw doudle layer disc burner.... this is what it says when i find discription in the computer.... 6.0.6000.16386 version driver# signed by micro...


You have to manually download the latest drivers from the Manufacturer and then point Vista where it is when the New Hardware wizard tries to install it.

Or your best bet is to go to Acer's support site and download the Driver for your DVD drive.
