VISTA and Pioneer DVD DVR-K17


My drive (Pioneer DVD DVR-K17) "seen" in BIOS. Also I can boot from this DVD drive. it's all ok.

My new lap top (SONY VAIO VGN-CR35G) running Vista home premium no longer reads CDs or DVDs I found this (Did not load driver SystemRootsystem32DRIVERScdrom.sys) in the boot log.

VISTA reinstalled three times - a result is identical - she does not see cd rom at once

Any advice would be gratefully recievd.

    (1) In the list of devices for setting any CD-ROM is absent and a producer PIONEER is even absent. Therefore this undertaking failed without the presence of additional driver (with *.inf file ).

    (2) Device manager does not contain what - or devices of DVD in general and even hidden, that it is possible it was to play enable/disable.

    (3) VISTA Operating system - original, supplied together with my new lap top SONY VAIO VGN-CR35G. Moreover, for the last time I reinstalled her without setting additional publicity software from SONY (virgin clean setting of one VISTA)

    If any recovery cd is given use that reinstall the labtop, before that you take all back up of data.

    You can try with installing Winxp.

    there is some thing wrong with your installation Vista DVD, check sony site for any additional driver for mother board. If you can brow some DVD and you can try.

Hello olejonok,
I ran into this problem while helping a friend with her laptop. Here is the solution:

1) Visit the following webpage:

2) Download "SOOOTH-01106200-US.EXE" 
3) Run the program and follow the instructions, then reboot.
There are several registry filters which, when removed and the system rebooted, re-enable your drive.
Applies to: DVR-K17 VGN-CR220E PCG-5J2L

Dell dvd drive not reading vista os dvd

It more than likely won't due to it being an OS. It's usually down to copy protection.

Best thing to do is reset the PC and go into your BIOS settings, then change the boot priorities so it boots from your DVD drive, when you save these settings restart the PC. This will make the PC read from the DVD first instead of the Hard drive for the OS, should bring up a message saying "press any key to boot from disc", then when you do press something it should start up the disc and you can reformat from there.

looking at the label on the top of the drive, jumper settings should be displayed on the bottom left along with a diagram on IDE position and relevance to power plug, or, looking at the back of the unit, it will be the second pair of pins in from the right (side furthest from the power plug)

see how you go

hmmm, this is unusual, it appears to be an incompatibility with the DVD software, as everything else seems to work may I suggest that you upgrade your DVD software for a later version.
