Question about Pioneer DVR-107D DVD±RW Burner
There are several reasons for your dvd writer being stopped working. It could be your Laptop or it could be the Dvd writer itself. So let's try some troubleshooting measures to find out the root of the problem.
*[Requirements; one extra working ata/ide dvd writer; another laptop with ata/ide connector for cd/dvd writer; soft brush, alcohol/acetone/spirit]*
First of all, let's get started with the Dvd writer; Remove the Dvd writer, clean the interfaces (connectors) using soft brush dipped in alcohol or spirit or acetone. Also clean the Ata connector on the Laptop. After they are dried, reinstall the Dvd writer on the slot and power on the Laptop and check if it's detected in the Bios or not. If it's detected, boot it into normal mode and check again. If you can see the drive in the My Computer, then you need to check whether it's reading cds/dvds or not. If it's not, then you need to try different cds/dvds and make sure any cd or dvd is working or not. In case none is read, switch off the Laptop and remove the dvd writer, now install it on the other laptop. (if you don't have another laptop with ide/ata connector for cd/dvd rom, you will not be able to perform this). No positive effect?, your only option in to replace it.
Doesn't the Bios detect the Drive? then install it directly on the other laptop, if its detected there and works well, then the problem is with the interface on the Laptop which you'll need to take it to a service center.
Now let's check the system. It'd be better if you had mentioned the operating system installed on your system. Many Windows 7 users are facing this problem because of Raid driver problem, as we know many hardwares and softwares aren't compatible with windows 7. In this case, the Bios will not detect the Cd/Dvd rom and when the computer is booted, it'll not show up on the My Computer or In the Device Manager.
Well, you might get confused, let me wind up here for now. Please let me know when you are done with the above mentioned instruction and if the problem persists and your system has windows 7 installed on it, let me know so that I can help you check the Raid settings and Drivers' signing problem.
Thanks for using FixYa.
