Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-K17 Device


hi there,

i would recommend reinstalling it. i had a similar problem with my Toshiba driver for my wireless laptop. i unistalled it and reinstalled it. since your computer is new, it will reinstall it by itself.

go into your control panel and click on add/remove programs.
find the device and click remove
then restart you pc and im assuming that you have Windows Vista
Vista will automatically reinstall the device
there are many reasons why that happened and it's mostly bugs in Visa itself

let me know how it turns out.

thanks

Cant play DVD ROMs


you can try uninstalling the drive, by going to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and look down the list for cd/dvd drives, click on '+' sign and right click on your drive make and select uninstal. Restart pc and your drive will be reinstalled automatically again. If you have a cd cleaner disc run that also. Try to run the game again, although it may still not work as the drives laser seems to be out of line or simply run it's life, and a new drive is the only answer i'm afraid.
