Can't detect device or fix drivers - A few suggestions and a possible patch

I lost my CD/DVD drives after installing Windows updates in Vista along with multiple other problems as well (warnings, color problems, freezing, installation failures)- all systems and both combo drives had been working perfectly with no new software other than Windows and HP pc updates. I tried multiple viable options you may consider -

I tried restoring the computer to a week it worked; I tried updating the device drivers in the device manager but it came back as 'drivers up to date' and working with no rollback options; I tried uninstalling the devices completely and reinstalling them in the device manager; I tried a full system repair in my pc tools; I went to the RAID Controller manufacturer's site to update that (see your dvd connections in the device manager 'view'); I searched for DVD hardware driver updates and patches; I tried recovering the original drivers through the recovery module; I even tried a complete pc recovery twice. The complete recovery worked until I got to the final few Windows updates and printer installations and then I was back at square one, which narrowed it down for me.

I've been struggling for over a week on the this issue in Vista with no luck regardless of effort for my DVD/CD combo drives, but have two ideas that may help someone -

1. I lost my card readers at the same time and was able to recover them by going to my device manager and uninstalling all my USB root hubs along with all the problem drivers at one time. After restart, a lot of my other problems disappeared as well, but not the DVD drives (they weren't USB connected). I've seen lots of USB issues in my search so gave it a try - this may work if you have a USB connection to your DVD drives.


2. While restoring and updating in little pieces, I found that the problems didn't come up with the Windows updates until after the Windows updates were installed and I began installing my printers and related photo and graphics programs. One of the ArcSoft programs had a patch specifically for disappearing DVD drives at http://www.arcsoft.com/support/downloads/download_patches/vista.asp. You may want to see if you are running any of their listed programs that the patch is for or check your graphics/photo programs for patches. The listed ArcSoft programs included PhotoImpression 5/6, VideoImpression 2, ShowBiz DVD 2, Slide Show Maker, TotalMedia, Picture Saver, QuickDVD, G DATA VideoStudio 2006 Pro, ADS MediaTV, NTI DVD Player, and Ego Backup. That was just for their patch, but there may be more out there. I suspect there may have been a tweaking of a cross-platform Windows files affecting compatability.

Hope that helps someone out there!

SOURCE: pioneer dvd rw-dvr- k16RS ATA drive can't read any cds

I have the same drive, mine will read part of a cd/dvd until it gets to the outer edge of the disk. Then it complains of corrupt data, or no disk. Removing the disk didn't help.

After a little experimenting I found that the Mechanism that moves the laser radially to the disk has a problem. It seems to lock up when it gets to the outer sectors. I found that if I moved it (by hand) to the center and then reinserted the disk it would recognize the disk. I still didn't read the out edges all the time.

The solution is to replace the drive. Newegg has one

Pioneer dvd rw-dvr- k16RS ATA drive can't read any cds


Uninstall You DVD/CD Rom Driver From Device manger in Control Panel and then Something Should Come Back Saying Installing Drivers For Your Device Wait Till Finishes Or If It Cannot locate driver browse for location and put C:/Windows If C Drive Is your windows drive put it But The Windows Folder Is Compulsory .

It Should Install The Drivers But Still If It Doesnt Work I Think You Just Have to Download Firmware For The Exact Model Of Your Drive Try Google or the Web Of The Manufacturer .

If It Still Doesnt Work I Hope You Have A Limited Warranty
Just Return It Or Give It to Test....

Good Day.
