Question about Pioneer DVR-111D (DVR111DBK) DVD RW Dual Layer Burner
So, I've been looking for a solution this problem for a couple days, but I found a lot of answers regarding not being able to read DVDs but still being able to read CDs and CD-ROMS.
My problem is the opposite. I can watch DVDs just fine, but my drive thinks for a while and tries to read the CDs and CD-ROMs, then just doesn't see there is a disc in the drive.
I heard from a friend to look at the BIOS, but I have no idea what I'm looking for in there. Driver is updated, and I do not use Nero. I am using Windows XP Pro. Any help is appreciated.
If your DVD/CDROM is not working ie..playing movies or not installing programs it may be because you have installed a software program that edited the regitry for the DVD/CDROM - (Limewire, any burning software, etc..) windwos installs an Upperfilter and or a Lowerfilter in the registry for the CDROM - to correct this follow these instructions:
To resolve this problem, remove the affected filter drivers.
To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box (Vista) or regedit in the Run box (XP), and then click Regedit in the
Programs list if in Vista or click Open in XP.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue. (Vista)
2. Locate, and then click the following registry subkeys: (must be exact keys)
Once you have clciked Class the click Edit on the menu at the top
Copy and paste the following key inclcuding the curly braces into the Find What box.
Click "Find Next"
3. Highlight by clicking on "UpperFilter" and "LowerFilter" ONLY - then hit Delete on the keyboard and select Yes
