Pioneer DVD RW DVR-K16 Problem
When this happen the problem is usually the CD drive, even if a virus can cause same problem.
To test if the problem is software, go to bios or boot options, set primary bot device CD/DVD, and start the computer with a boot disk inside.When asked chose boot from CD.
If the computer does not see the dvd drive, and does not ask you if to boot from CD on this conditions, then you have a faulty DVD RW drive.
Try first removing the DVD drive and refitting it in place, after removing battery and unplugging the AC adapter cord.
If that does not work, you usually need to replace the driver, even if on rare circumstances a faulty motherboard can cause the same.
That is however quite unusual.
the most common is a faulty optical drive.
