    Hi !

    I got the same problem. I've read so many thread before and no one have any answer to that situation.

    I'm using Windows Vista and my pc is a Sony Vaio VGN-FZ21E ...

    The situation is this one :
    In first time my CD/DVD writter desapere. I think it's linked to my last utilisation of TuneUp utilities (I tried to change the icon of the dvd writter .. :D). So I directly look to my "gestionnaire des périphériques" (sorry I'm using french version of vista) to see if my device were correctly installed and I saw that it were a yellow /!\ (I don't know the name ..) next to the icon. So I checked the proprity and the driver were not correctly installed : error code 10.
    So after looking solution on google, I found something who told to install the pilote of windows but I doesn't work. In fact after installation and restarting my pc, the DVD writter weren't able to open any cd ..
    So I uninstall the driver and I reinstall with the windows assitant for installing driver. But it couldn't intalled correctly the new driver ! (error code : 1).

    Vista vista ... : /

    Thanks for your help ! and sorry for my english :D

Hello olejonok, 
I ran into this problem while helping a friend with her laptop. Here is the solution: 

1) Visit the following webpage: http://esupport.sony.com/perl/swu-download.pl?template=EN&mdl=&upd_id=2031&SMB=YES

2) Download "SOOOTH-01106200-US.EXE"  
3) Run the program and follow the instructions, then reboot. 
There are several registry filters which, when removed and the system rebooted, re-enable your drive.
Applies to: DVR-K17 VGN-CR220E PCG-5J2L

Before you do anything else check your device manager to make sure the driver is installed properly.

Pioneer dvd-rw dvr-k17 problem


This sounds like you have a Virus or Some other type or Malware that has corrupted your drivers. Please Scan with Avast (http://www.avast.com/), Spybot S&D(http://www.safer-networking.org/), and Adaware (http://lavasoft.com/) all of witch have free versions.

Also it may be that your driver got corupted some othere way if it still does not work try roleing back your driver or updateing it.

Thank you,
Rel

P.s. if that does not work please come back and make sure you give the info that you have

scanned with the above and if you do not reply in this question then make sure you include all

that info with all the info you have already put here. Good Luck!

This worked: thanks to riozebratubo

delete the entires in regedit.exe

"UpperFilters"
"LowerFilters"

They're inside:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}]

-uninstall the driver

Vista is searching for existing drivers -> done
