    I've got a toshiba p205 s6267 and my Pioneer DVD-RW dVR-K17LF is not burning/reading anything. Itried to get a firmware for that but looks like pioneer doesn't have any (yet).

    My Dvd burner was working fine and just stopped burning correctly. I go through the steps of Fromatiing the DVD, copying the folder and then when I go to the step of Make Compatable is starts the process, then crashes and my computer reboots each time. And it did not finish the Make compatable. So the DVDs are not being read by others. I ran PC Doctor and found an Internal Error. Can this be fixed?

    My Pioneer K17LF in my Toshiba P205 lap-top does just the opposite.

    I can burn/read DVDs, but it doesn't recognize CDs. And it just started doing this recently.

    I thought it was Linux, but then I realized that also I couldn't boot from CDs either, and that happens pre-OS.

    This has happened to me once before and just recently after working on a small cd burning project the driver suddenly stopped reading any discs inserted. I looked it up on the internet the last time, but can't remeber where I went to get it fixed.

I have a Pioneer dvd recorder that had 2 capacitors blow; a 10V 3300uf and a 10V 1000 uf. I replaced them and the recorder powered up fine but now it doesn't recognize if a disc is in it and reads "No...

Check for more damaged Capacitors and check out the resistors and diodes around the damaged caps which you replaced. Check the traces on the circuit board and look for cold solder joints bridges and such. Also... Did you make sure you got your polarity correct on your caps?

Hi, I have a DVD PIONEER DVR-330-S writer. Here is the problem: it starts writing disks, but can't finish the job, hence the disks can't be read by any DVD player. Could you please help me...

After you have burned the disc it will require Finalizing.
This is done by the same machine.
Consult the manual for specific insrtuctions.

Pioneer dvr player will not reconize disk when inserted in player...will not read it..

I bought some off brand rw-dvd's and the Pioneer would not recogzine them. The Maxell and the Sony work great. No problem with the r-dvd's.

Mine quit working completely, it keep opening and shutting itself and this morning it was opened when I got up and when I closed it the dvd hung up in it. This is the second time for the hangup and I had to take it apart to get the dvd out both time. This time it stopped working altogether. It just says Load across the front.

Hope this helps you.
