Pioneer DVD_RW DVR-K17LF

Dear Dr. Nitin

I think you may be right but I am not sure what you would like me to do.

I used the Windows CD burner and also Toshiba Disc creator. In both the case I selected the files to be copied in the source pane and transferred them to target pane and then started the CD burn. After the process completed successfully I find the burned CD appears as blank

Could be many things, damaged laser, messed up system files, damaged drivers. Or just windows. I suggest reinstalling windows if that doesn't work replace the dvd drive.

    One more thing to add, it's alot cheaper to replace the dvd drive inside of the laptop instead of replacing the laser. Replacing the dvd drive isn't so difficult. It seems most likely to be windows. What you could try is system restore.

    Run --> msconfig --> System Restore...

    Find a date back in the past where the system was working. What you can also do to test to see if it's windows with out loosing your files, partition like 10 gb and install windows xp, boot into the partition windows xp and try to burn a disc. If all works we know it's windows what you can try is reinstall your drivers for the driver or do a system restore or reinstall windows, BACKUP first. If it's windows then you can delete the partition 10gb to get back the 10gb for you to use again. If all was working awhile back and you know the date and all the programs you might of installed since then. Go to Control Panel --> Add/Remove Programs --> Find all installed since then and remove them.

I bought a replacement DVD-RW-DVR from Toshiba, but I do not have a driver.I'm using Window7. "They sent me a Pioneer DVD-RW-DVR-K17LF ATA device.

Attach the new drive as instructed.
Make sure the notebook has an internet connection and switch it on normally. Windows should recognize the unit and ask you for a driver. Click install automatically. It may then download the driver and install it.
If none of this happens, keeping the internet connection open, right-click My Computer/ Hardware/Device manager and the DVD will appear there with a question mark meaning it is uninstalled. Click on it and choose to install a new driver. Windows should do the rest. Good luck.
There may be a third way to download the driver from Toshiba and install it manually.

Driver pioneer dvd-rw dvr-k17lf is skill

I had the same problem with my Toshiba .I thought the dvd-rw-dvr was bad. After diagnosing the problem, I found out the device was working ok but the driver was missing or corrupted. After uninstalling and disabling a few times windows 7 couldn't fix the problem. I went to the control panel right clicked on devices and printers. Pictures of the devices showed up on a screen. One pic was "Jim's computer" showing at the bottom of the pic was a small yellowish icon indicating a problem with the device. I right clicked on the device,"Jim's computer", and a menu appeared. Near the bottom of the menu was an item which said "trouble shoot". I clicked on it and bingo. I followed the directions and loaded a filter driver. The DVD was fixed.

You're creating Disk images on your Hard Disc Drive.

See where your CD Burning Software stores the images of the Disk and use the appropriate option to burn them onto a blank CD.
