Try uninstalling the burner using the Device manager and letting Windows reinstall the drivers on reboot.
Right click on My Computer then Properties > Hardware > Device Manager > click on the '+' next to DVD/CD ROM drives, right click on the drive and 'uninstall'. Reboot and Windows will re-install the drive.
I have a Pioneer DVDRW DVR-K16, in a sony dv81114Notebook. Running Windows XP. It cannot play dvd's and cd's, It will recognize blank CD-R's but when I insert a DVD-R it say's no disc installed. I have firmware version 1.15.
You don't actually need a driver. All cd/dvd drives are plug and play. All you need to do is plug it all in to your system, turn it on, and Windows will do the rest. Once Windows has installed it. You can update everything from here: http://sony.storagesupport.com/product/112#drivers
You need to check to see if the dvd drive is set to digital playback because it is probably trying to find your on board AC97 - 5.1 digital output. With a music CD it doesn't have to be connected digitially because it uses analog for stereo playback but most DVD's - if a movie - are set to playback in digital. Open 'My Computer', right click on your DVD drive, select properties, select hardware, highlight your DVD drive, click on properties, then properties again, check- Enable digital CD audio for this CD-ROM device.
I have come across one DVR-S120 that has a shorted spindle motor. This is the motor that spins the disk. Therefor the unit will not play a cd or dvd. Yamaha sale's the complete dvd Assy. for $300 witch is absurd.
you need a dvd player program that is designed for dvd playback I use Cyberlink powerdvd to play dvd's on my pc you could look for another player out there but windows needs a codec to play dvds with sound.
hope this solves your problem
