Toshiba dvd burner problem

I have a pioneer dvd-rw dvr-k17a ata device in my Toshiba Satellite A105 and suddenly it will not play or recognize DVDs. It will play cd's, but not DVD's. It was working fine one minute and while in the middle of burning a DVD I recieved a warning that the dvd was bad, then it just stopped working.

Any ideas?

Try unistalling the dvd drive in device manager. Go to my computer click on view system information. Then click on hardware, then click on device manager find your dvd drive then right click and unistall a warning window will popup click ok. Once you unistall it restart the system and windows will find new device and reinstall the device driver. Then check if this fixes the problem. if this dosnt fix the problem try removing the dvd drive from the laptop and reinsert it. Sometimes the connection losses contact with the terminals.

Dear Sir/Madam,


This is the problem of not matching/support the motherboard of your driver with Pioneer DVD. U just go the manufacturing site of Pioneer dvd and download the driver / updates and then install it. (Before u uninstall the driver). Then fix it.

Thanks
