    I did try that but the Pioneer site was not very helpful. I found out my problem was in my registry. I had to delet some files from my registry and my dvd and cd burners magically appeared. My computer crashed a couple of weeks ago and I had to run the recovery 4 times before it finally worked. I still have a lot of bugs but atleast its working again.

    I do have antivirus. I'm running Microsoft One Care and its suppose to have a registry cleaner but apparently it doesn't. I was running AVG before and when I switched to One Care is when I started having problems. I never had any probs on AVG.

    i actually got this fixed. i had to delete some registry files....now onto other problems. i hooked my printer back and installed it but it seems my usb ports are not recognizing that its hooked up. i've tried both the back and front ports. i went into the device manager and tried updating the drivers but apparently there was no update available. i also tried uninstalling and rebooting but that didn't work either. on top of that problem, when i dbl click on my explorer icon on my desktop it doesn't open, it just creates another shortcut....the bad thing about it is the computer is not that old..a little over a year

You can get the drivers from the internet via google or yahoo by typing the name and model of your dvd rw and get the drivers.

    Do you have an anti virus in your computer?

    I asked this because there may be a virus in your com, if not the computer can't crash ann so on! try to get the latest updates for the anti virus and scan your computer regularly after using the net cause there are a heck of a lot of viruses roaming in the net, even I got one. If you can give me the details of your dvd rom I will try to get you the drivers!

Can't recognise DVD RW


Hi all,

Boy, have I been having a problem. I've tried two different dvd burners, an external TDK DVD+/- RW drive and now an internal NEC dual layer DVD+/-RW drive. I have a Dell Dimension 4500 that came with a Dell branded Windows XP Pro. Have you ever tried getting support from Dell? What a freaking bad joke that is.

Microsoft says there is known problem with XP viewing a DVD+/-RW disc the same way it views a CD+/-RW disc. Problem is a CD RW uses 32 bit packets and a DVD RW uses 16 bit packets. As a result, without the fix, my computer can't recognize there is a DVD RW disk in the drive when trying to burn to it. It recognized DVD +R and DVD-R discs just fine, and I am able to burn to those with no problem.

What I want to do is image my hard drive and burn the image to DVD. That I can't do, because it always comes up with "no disk" or some variation thereof anytime I try to write to an RW disc. Any suggestions? Has anyone else had this problem?

Sony Optiarc AD-7581A 8x DVD?±RW DL Notebook IDE Drive w/LightScribe Burner is not being recognized and installed.... It shows the error 10 "device will not start" can anyone help?


Try a cold boot. Shut down the computer. Remove the battery. Unplug the power cord. Wait at least five minutes. Start up the computer. If still does not work, go to device manager --> CD/DVD drives. Uninstall the Optiarc drive. Go to Actions --> Scan for Hardware Changes, or simply reboot to reinstall the drive.

USB device not recognized


The USB device is not recognized because the proper software for the computer to read the devices memory is not installed. Visit the manufacturers websites for drivers and software downloads and install for proper device model.

Not displayed in my computer, but displayed in device manager with yellow exclamtion mark code39 driver error


Install its driver I think. If this device is in the yellow mark in device manager. Have it go to update driver or install driver. The exclamation mark should be gone. Or better install its bundled software application

HOPe this one helps

GSA-2166D recognized by computer but does not recogniz media?


Try removing the device from device manager, then reboot. Windows should then re-detect the device and re-install the drivers for it. If that doesn't work, try the device on another computer. If it still doesn't work, it's probably defective.
