It could be a wrong burning software, try out Nero, but my experience is that usualy these things are dieing this way, first they won't write dvd than won't even read later they are even haveing troubles with cds.
If that's the case than it's time to use your warranty if you have any left, or if you don't but you want to fix it than just bring it to the local laptop repair center and they'll change it for you for 30-60 GBP+ their services or just buy one at ebay and do it yourself, but in that case double check what you are ordering, or ask the seller about compatibility.

My pioneer dvd-rw dvr-k16m ata isn't playing music or dvds


Hi can you burn cds/dvds ? If not you can try to clean your dvd-rw. If that does not work is probably means its went to meet its maker and you will have to replace it.You can buy a new one for around £20.

My pioneer laptop dvd rw dvr k16 ra has the same problem only plays film dvd but will not read any other cd or the xp instal cd or any other software. Please can you help thanking Gustav F


gustav94I have the same dvd player and had the same problem, I just couldn't read my data cds and it was so frustrating windows kept telling me the cds with data were blank, i searched thoroughly over the net for an answer but most involved registry mods or flashing the firmware which could bog your dvd for life.
I was about to give up and get a hammer and whack the computer when i decided to get a dry cotton bud and gently wipe the laser lens of the dvd player, and guess what?
my good old data cds were being read!!!
kudos to classics.

Pioneer DVR K17A don't read CDs


Does the player play Audio disks? if so then it could be a software issue. It sounds more like the CD laser has died on your unit. The CD/DVD unit has two lasers, one for the CD side of things and another for the DVD. If still under warranty get replacement.
Hope this helps.

Yes you can when playing the DVD on a computer, there are softwares that switch your DVD-ROM region to suit your DVD and so you can play it, well before i give you links to the site providing such a software let me first check the legality of such softwares.
