Installed SH-S202 dvd writer some time ago, and since that time have experienced shut down problems on my Dell with XP pro. It never shuts down, but seems to go into Standby mode first. Then, when it comes out of stand by mode, it shuts down. Is there a patch for this?

Check the power settings:

START | Control panel | Power settings

Make sure all settings are Never

Also go to the Advanced tab and remove any Standby entries.

The DVD Writer installation is most likely a coincidence then an actual suspect with the standby issues.

I fitted a new DVD Writer on my computer (XP Pro) and when I put a disc in the rom, a Microsoft error message poped up 'Windows Media Player cannot play the DVd because a compatible DVD decoder is not...

That's going to be a software error. Basically just letting you know that it has no idea how to play the file. Might need to upgrade to the latest Media Playerif you're trying to actually play a movie, or just disable autoplay to get rid of the message entirely

Sh-s202 dvd writer recognises DVDs to play, but not to burn onto.

Try using a quality dvd lens cleaner. Run it a cycle or two of cleaning then retry the dvd. If it works it was just a dirty laser. If this doesn't correct the problem then it might be a dvd optics issue. Hope this helps.

SH-S202 wont read disks


Plug it in, then goto device manager and uninstall it, then right click on your pc at the top of the device manager and click "Scan for changes", the drivers might be corrupt.

If you still have a problem after this let me know.

The problem might be with you cable remove the cable of your writer and plug it to another id port after pluging in install the drivers of the writer, this should solve your problem, if not then go to computer manager in that disk drives in that find the name of your writer. first disable it for a second then enable it now go to its properties and in that just press the button of check for updates, your screen will blink once and your drive will be installed properly.

Pioneer DVD Burner no longer reading burnt disks...

yes your quite correct, starforce once installed can damage the fimware more so for multi writers, a common problem will be slower recording speeds. It can even damage the hardware itself and render the writer totally useless. If your getting to that stage, for the price of a new writer, it's not worth the worry, replacing the drive is the only answer.
