Question about Pioneer DVR-X152 DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner
I bought a new dvd/br/mdisc drive because the drive inside my Pioneer case died. I found a couple lines on a Web site and they said to take the face plate off, the screws, then remove the bottom cover. That thing seems like it's glued on and I don't want to break a nail! LOL! I got the face plate off and disc tray out, unscrewed the 2 screws on the back as well as the two that are under the pads on the bottom, then nothing. I'm pulling at it but I can't even tell which side is supposed to come off. Someone please help!!!

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.

look for the mark at the top, MA for master, SL - slave, CS - cable select, these three are main connection for IDE designation using the plastic jumper, just follow where it is in your pioneer.

I know this is an old thread, but I came across it looking for this solution. I found it elsewhere, but I thought that I might save the next person that looks for this some time. I found the solution here
third post, thank you Jerry K for this.
It is a Windows thing, losing drives when installing/un-installing burning software...
If the drives are still listed in the Device Manager, delete them then, carefully follow this fix:
a. Click on Start --> Run --> and type in 'regedt32' followed by the enter key
b. Expand the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" key (looks like a folder) by double clicking it (or clicking the "+" next to it.)
c. Expand the "SYSTEM" Key
d. Expand the "CurrentControlSet" Key
e. Expand the "Control" Key
f. Expand the "Class" Key
g. Look for a key containing the following string of letter and numbers:
h. Highlight this key by left clicking once on it
i. On the right hand side you are looking for "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" under the "Name" column, once you find these delete them by right clicking on them and choosing "delete"
j. Exit the registry by clicking on the "X" in the top right hand corner of the screen.
reboot and now your drives should work fine.

This is gonna be a bit complicated since were going to access your registry, but just follow all the steps and it will be much easier
>Click on START
>Type REGEDIT on the search bar on START Menu
>Look for the Upper Filters / right click on it / click on Delete
>Look for the Lower Filters / right click on it / click on Delete
>Try you CD / DVD ROM
If nothing happens, click on this link then click on RUN and follow the steps, then restart computer and try to run a disc again, if still nothing happens, theres a possibility that the problem is with the hardware side or the media player that you are you using...
Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...
