    I have the same problem on my AVERATEC 5400.

    adamrass says "Finally, out of desperation, rolled-back the driver and restarted. Plays DVD's just fine now".

    Great! Now what does, "rolled-back the driver" mean? What are the steps I can use to do that. :-)

I had the same problem, tried everything. Finally, out of desperation, rolled-back the driver and restarted. Plays DVD's just fine now.

Averatec 3200, cant find DVD Rom driver in "My Computer" or "Device Manager" When I put in a CD I can hear the disk spinning but it never loads. I deleated the upper and lower filters and restarted the...


Hello,

Make sure the BIOS is 'seeing' the drive. Reboot your pc, press F2 as soon as it starts to boot (Or watch your screen and the POST will display which function key to press to enter setup.) If the BIOS is NOT seeing the drive, you may need to a) replace the drivers for the dvd or b) replace the dvd rom itself. (I recommend the drivers first.) Please repost your results and we will continue to monitor your progress.

Good Luck

Recognizes DVD but doesn't recognize CD or CD-RW


Need more info about your problem to answer the question. What does "recognize" mean. Will it play a DVD or recognize a recordable, blank DVD? When you say "recognize" what software is recognizing, the OS or a burner software like Nero?

Please help, my Averatec 3200 does not play dvds.


Try to use a dvd player software like winows media player (included in windows), just put the dvd in and it will ask about what to do, just select to play with media player and you can enjoy. (double click to put it fullscreen)
If nothing happens after inserting the disc than push start menu button go to programs and windows media player should be there somewhere, or in start menu push run and type wmplayer and than push enter. Than open the dvd with it.

Not recognizing disc in D drive


Hi, well the short answer is NO. You cannot use DVD's in a CD Writer at all. So the simple answer is to get some CD-R and copy the files to them. OR get a Combo DVD/CD writer and install that as well.. and then you can use both..

Some models of PIONEER cd players had radio frequency problems that caused them to work on and off. Are you near any radio or braodcast towers? Poorly shielded power supplies cause this as well. A weak laser diode in the pick-up assembly in model runs could be the problem. You might want to Google the model number and see if this is common for these units.
