    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!

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.

Why does my lenovo insist on my having a cd rom when i have a dvd writer installed? how do I fix it so that computer recoognizes it?


I have the same situation. My computer has a
DVD-RW/CD-RW installed yet when it is empty, the computer simply recognizes it as a CD drive. However, it will automatically recognize any DVD I place in the drive. Even a blank DVD-R. So it's not really a problem for me.

Also, if you type in DEVICE MANAGER in your windows search area, it will show you all your computer's hardware and peripherals. I have Windows Vista 64 bit and in device manager it does recognize it as an ATAPI DVD under "DVD/CD-ROM DRIVES".

I haven't seen a DVD burner yet that won't play or write cd's; maybe this is standard.

I wouldn't worry about it as long as it performs the functions (play/burn DVD's?)

Hope this helps.8a17955.jpgb9e40e6.jpg

Compaq V2000 - Service Tag V2220US Only recognizes the CD/DVD drive as "CD" Does not see it as a DVD Drive. Listed as: _NEC DVD+-RW ND-6500A in Device Manager.


Try updating your drivers from www.hp.com

If the issue is that it won't play DVD movies only then you probably need to install or re-install the DVD player software that should have come with your computer. If you don't have it anymore, simply download from HP.

System does not recognize CD/DVD Drive


The yellow triangle means there is no driver installed. There is 3 ways to get a driver. In most cases you right click on the hardware in Device Manager and download driver or reboot and Plug n Play should pick up driver automatically. If none of those work then the only option is to load it thru the add/removal in the control panel using the disc that accompanies the softeare.

I have recently bought a samsung SH-S202 DVD RW IDE. I have installed it but cannot get my computer to recognise it. any help would be appreciated. cheers Ellen


What exactly do you mean your computer cant recognize it? When you click on my computer or when you look at Device manager? well in either case go back in and check your connections also make sure you have the setting on your dvd device to master or slave correct.

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.
