My Pioneer dvr-106d refuses to
read certain discs (even if new),
there are a few different things that happen:
When i insert a dvd windows freezes;
happened with an old burned dvd movie.
I tried to play a new 5 dvd set i bought wich works on an other pc,first drive reads a bit, mouse changes then nothing;
it just shows a "new folder" when i click on the drive
where the dvd is in
When i insert a music cd, it works most of the time,
cant remember problems with that.
When i check for problems nothing happens ,
device is ready it says all the time.
If it helps the same happens with my
Sony -DDu 1612 drive
I took the drive from my other pc and excanged it with the sony but it still couldnt read the new discs :D .
Thanks a lot in advance

Re: Dvr-106d -Windows freezes,cant read new Dvds
If you have had two drives with the same problem i would check the ide cable and swap to another one if you have a master and slave twin connector ide cable, or even try the dvd rom on the same ide cable as the hard drive as you know that that ide connector and cable is working, unless you have a SATA hard drive in which case you won't be able to; but will still have a spare ide channel connector to try the drive on.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

will any disc at all load if not u probably have something **** inside or broke inside do u have babies or little kids my 3 year old shoved part of a crayon in our dvd player and i had to take it apart and dig it out n cleanit and it still worked
i have the same problem ,but when i restart my pc ,i put the disk it can read without a doult .The problem is your disk drive can't read disk when it on windows mode ,using dos and it just fine,some kind of trouble appear cause i burn too much disk in a time and it can't read next time i open computer .May be your windows problem just restart wins then put the disk in ,if it appear the green light it mean it's reading then the green light off it's mean it had identify the disk and does read it
Hopefully, these will help you to get the DVDs to run without having to shell out for them. I'm curious to see whether or not this helps with the C&C3, as it does seem very coincidental that this game should stop working at exactly the same time as your DVDs stop playing because your upgraded WMP no longer has the necessary codecs...
