My Pioneer DVR-K15 is not burning/playing disks. Its not reconising the Windows Visa Home Prenium disk I'm trying to install. I got a virus a while back and it wiped all the drivers even using the system reset CD's it nothing worked so i re-installed all the drivers for everything. It recognises CD's and will burn CD's but not DVD's. It came installed on a Targa Traveller.

Re: Pioneer DVR-K15 Not Doing DVD's
These drives, remarkably, don't need drivers to work, just a good non-microsoft burner, so your burning program may be corrupt. If you don't know what burning program you have,
I recommend downloading Belarc Advisor, a free program which not only tells you everything in your
computer, with model numbers for hardware and all of your software
(with their unique codes), and will also inform you if you are
missing any needed Windows updates.
Once you know what you have, if it came with the computer, you have
to seek an upload at the computer manufacturer's website, as it may
be a special program not related to the burning software purchased
from the software manufacturer---go to their website for upgrades.
Also, check device manager in control panel under hardware to see if you
have a problem with anything (a big yellow check) to fix.

Windows contains the support for reading CD-disks and "data" DVD disks.
You need software, e.g., from 'www.PowerDVD.com', to play a movie on a DVD-disk.
You can get _free_ software from 'www.majorgeeks.com', named "Ashampoo Burning 6", to allow you to write CD-R and DVD disks.
i have the same problem ,but when i restart my pc ,i put the disk it can read without a doult .The problem is your disk drive can't read disk when it on windows mode ,using dos and it just fine,some kind of trouble appear cause i burn too much disk in a time and it can't read next time i open computer .May be your windows problem just restart wins then put the disk in ,if it appear the green light it mean it's reading then the green light off it's mean it had identify the disk and does read it
have you had any virus infections? I would download malware bytes and rootkit revealer to see if you have any viruses or rootkits you should email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and you might have a rootkit that is causing issues with the dvd read/write. otherwise a failing device. you could also burn puppylinux on a cd, run it and see if you can pop in a dvd and see if it reads the media. if so you are looking at a windows software file or virus issue.
your DVD ROM lens has became weak. and it cannot be repaired. But
if you manage to open the DVD ROM clean the dust in it & it will
start working again but be careful remember that no power should be
attached to ROM. or you can buy a lens cleaner from market and try that. pls rate my solution thankyou
Imy burner will burn if I go into MY COMPUTER than into MY E drive but the auto burn will not work. I do have 1dvd click and ashampoo on the computer as well, but when I put a disc into the computer it will not automtically work. I was wondering if the above programs are stopping the auto play on it or what? The burner works fine if I go to the E drive and install o burn it that way, is there some kind of a setting or something that went out of wack??
You need to uninstall the device driver for you IDE controller and then let windows to a hardware detect and reinstall. I have had this problem before with my compaq laptop and the pioneer K15 DVD drive.
Open it with NERO softwer and add some files to burn, down at the right end of window (nero's) have a line that says how much space on disc there is. Simple as this, I just caimed from my DVD dealer and he explained to me, Empty disc will always say 0 Bytes but if you open Nero Burner you'll be able to se how much of space is free on scale, after and whille adding files to burn image. Hope you understand me :)
