Ensure that you try both DVD-R and +R. If the DVD RW is not new try using a lens cleaner disk.
If the problem persist it can be a faulty DVD RW drive, or a problem with Windows, DVD unit should be tested on a different machine to find out.
This is a job that is better done at a repair shop.

Need to find correct driver to reinstall.


Optical drives never require a driver when used in any Windows os from Win95 up. Windows XP provides native support that allows this drive to read a data or music disk and to burn a cd-r disk. No support for playing dvd disks or for burning dvd or cd-rw disks. For those tasks, compatible 3rd. party recording & dvd decoding software is required.

If your problem is non-detection, ie: drive is not listed in "My Computer", please read post #24 in this thread: http://forums.driverguide.com/showth...t=21669&page=4

It contains instructions on the delete the upper and lower filters fix

Also, there is a STICKY posted in this forum that contains a file from Microsoft and instructions that will do this registry edit automatically instead of having to do it manually.


And here's another method that will do this automatically for you if you're afraid to edit the registry manually.

Code: http://forums.driverguide.com/showthread.php?t=22131
(automatic fix, post #7, download file: CdGone.zip)

Alternately, download and install the DVD fix from the Web site below.

http://www.dougknox.com/xp/scripts/xp_cd_dvd_fix.vbs


After performing this registry fix, just reboot the pc. Now your drive should be visible in My Computer and work properly.

By mistake I bought a dvd rw disc instead of dvd-rw disc and recorded a holiday video on my camcorder with it. I usually then upload the contents of the dvd onto my hard drive (Pioneer) and then download...


Try uploading to your PC then converting it to AVI this keeps quality of video. Then if you want to download to a disk use Nero to convert it to VOB (DVD format) and burn off. You can also use Nero to erase the disk. (Nero 7 or more recent preferably.) You must also be sure you PC DVD read write head can take the DVD +/- RW. CHeck compatability.

My pioneer cd/dvd/rw-dvr 111D will not recognize a cd in the drive, usually this happens with game cds. it does recognize some,but some it does not. i have put the same disc into another computers cd/dvd...


My cd drive does this as well not a good thing but I have found that if you put a disc you know it will read in then anydisc you want it to read it should read it. Mine only does it every now and then. I have also found that if just after the cd door closes if you give it a tap on the cd door it will read the disc try it it might work for you. I have taken mine to a repairer and the drive is operating fine and they could not figure out what was wrong for it to do that and yes it did do it for them to.

DVD-RW drive burns music CDs and DVDs, but not data CDs


Alright. Seems like Windows, for some reason, doesn't think your drive is able to burn things when trying to deal with this kind of disc.

I'll need further information, like if you use another program to burn music CDs, and what other things might have changed the registry settings. I know of a fix that resolves issues with the Windows version of data CD burning, but it only applies to CD-R and CR-RW drives..

You have to manually download the latest drivers from the Manufacturer and then point Vista where it is when the New Hardware wizard tries to install it.

Or your best bet is to go to Acer's support site and download the Driver for your DVD drive.
