Pioneer Dvr X152 Driver

I just installed a pioneer usb dvr x152 burner on my ibm thinkpad r40 notebook. All drivers and firmware are at the current update levels. The problem is that the drive will not recognize dvd-r blank disks, therefore i cannot burn anything to a dvd.

I have contacted pioneer and they say that this is not an issue with their hardware as it is designed as plug and play. They say this is a windows issue and to contact microsoft.

In addition, on this same ibm thinkpad i had a working dvd burning capability with xp on the internal cd/dvd rw drive, but after installing windows 7, it can only read dvd's and not burn them.

As i scan the blogs, it appears that there are many others like me with the same issue, so it appears that microsoft needs to publish an upgraded driver asap.

Error message saying "windows needs the dvd drive driver", but windows already sees the dvd drive. Is it really asking for raid drivers? When will it ask for raid drivers? In what form will it want the drivers (there is no floppy port on this motherboard.

Problem With Pioneer Dvr 109 Driver

I just recently updated my pc from windows xp to windows 7 32 bit. Everything went smoothly, however my dvd/rw drive (the one listed in the title) has not been working since. I don't see any drivers listed in device manager that look like they pertain to the pioneer dvd/rw drive.

I called pioneer tech support and they told me that the drive is plug and play and that windows 7 should have automatically found it when i switched over from xp. I've tried everything that i can think of to find the driver. The firmware that is listed on the pioneer website does not appear to be compatible with windows 7. Unfortunately because i am already running windows 7, i cannot see if the drive is compatible using the windows 7 update program.

Win 7 Does Not Recognize Hard Drive

I am building two new computers and purchased two oem licenses of windows 7 home premium 64-bit. Both computers are using a biostar ta890gxb hd motherboard, amd phenom ii x6 1055t cpu, lg gh24 multi-optical drive, and 4 gb of kingston ddr3 1333 ram. The first computer was recycling a maxtor stm3320620as hard drive. This had been recently reformatted to ntfs, so essentially starting over from scratch. The second computer was using a brand new hitachi hd30500idk hard drive.

Upon booting up the first computer, i would get to the screen where i am to choose what hard drive to install on, but none are listed. The bios does show the hard drive properly. I tried going into advanced section to load drivers, but it can't find any drivers for the sata controller. I then followed advice i found when searching for a solution and i found how to get to the command line.

I am able to go to the c: drive. I was able to re-format the c: drive. After it was finished, i tried to go back in and it still does not recognize any hard drives. After a while, i gave up and tried working on the second computer. Upon booting up the second computer, i got to the screen for choosing the hard drive and it identified the hitachi hd. I was able to install the operating system and everything has been exactly what i was expecting it to be. S stated, they are identical except for the hard drives.

I have double checked all my connections numerous times on the first computer but everything checks out fine. It seems odd that i can access the hard drive in command line and in the bios, but the windows 7 installer doesn't recognize it. Any advice besides going out and purchasing a new hard drive?

After doing that, my windows vista will not recognize the disk. When i try to access the drive via computer/dvd drive e:, i get the message; "insert a disk". The drive will read other disks just fine but not the windows 7 disk now what?

Blu Ray Drive Does Not Recognize Disc

I have a sony blu-ray disc drive on a windows 7 machine. The drive works fine for cd's and dvd's but will not recognize blu-ray discs. All of the firmware is up to date and the cyberlinke blu-ray advisor program says my hardware passes all of the tests for basic playback. But i can't even get to trying to play a disc when windows doesn't even recognize that there is a blu-ray disc in the drive. Any ideas?

Win 7 Does Not Recognize Usb Drive & Ipod

This has been really bothering me. Windows 7 works perfectly with my old programs after my upgrade. Only when i plug in my usb external drive and ipod touch, ipod video. It does not recognize it. I tried device manager and looking for it there, it does not show up. When i go on safe mode, "usb mass storage" shows up but i cannot update cuz it keeps saying it already has the best driver installed. When i look at "properties" it says there is no driver installed.

With my ipods, i tried stopping and restarting ipod service, apple mobile device, itunes. I tried reinstalling a newly downloaded copy of itunes at least 4 times. That does not work.

There is a registry fix for this on windows xp titled "windows xp cannot detect a usb flash drive, an apple ipod, or an external hard disk drive" but does not have one for windows 7. The xp fix even has a download fix for fixing the registry. Is there one also for windows 7. I am going through the trouble of installing virtual pc and xp mode just to use my devices.

Win7 Can't Recognize Driver For Raid C: Drive

I am trying to upgrade from windows xp professional (32 bit) to windows 7. The installation stalls when it asks for a cd or dvd with the drivers used by my ati 1x2 mirror/raid1 scsi disk device. I tried to get it to recognize the drivers already installed on the machine. It won't, it keeps insisting on a cd or dvd. I copied the correct drivers from the xp windows/system 32 using the file identities in "hardware" under windows system to a dvd. No dice.

I downloaded the drivers from hp (the pc is a compaq/hp machine) and installed them on the dvd. Still doesn't work. Now what do i do. If i format the drive and start afresh, the upgrade disc won't find my xp system, and may not up grade. Windows claims that my machine is windows 7 ready.

Win 7 Won't Recognize The Hard Drive

Got an h. D. Attached by a sata controller to my computer.
When i click on "my computer" i can't see it.

I tried right click on computer and "manage".
This is what i see under "disk management":

[Img]http://i28. Tinypic.com/2u56g53.png[/img]

As you can see, windows recognize "disk 2" yet won't assign it a drive letter. When i click on "change drive letter and path" i get an error message:

[Img]http://i30. Tinypic.com/2lw11c5.png[/img]

Needless to say refreshing it won't help.

Anyhow, the disk worked just before i installed windows 7 (it's a fresh installation).
So it's some kind of "new hard drive".
It contains valuable data.

Any idea how to access it? Maybe it lost its file table?

Asus G73 Drive Does Not Recognize Blu Ray Disc

Recently got a new laptop - asus g73 with blu ray/windows 7 64 bit pro/comes with powerdvd 9
When i put a dvd in the drive, everything works fine.

When i put a blu ray disc in the drive - windows does not recognize that there is a disc in the drive (i.e. No auto-play, no disc recognized in windows explorer). Also, the powerdvd9 software also does not recognize there is a disc inserted. When i first opened the powerdvd program, it asked me to setup the correct region codes, and i've also setup the correct country in windows. The model of my blu ray drive is "matshita bd-cmb uj141as".

Win 7 Once Connected To Nas Drive Wont Recognize Upnp Devices

I have a laptop running windows 7 that once connected to a nas drive wont recognize upnp devices, is very slow to uninstall programmes, will not shutdown, and generally grinds to a halt. I have a western digital nas drive, an hp hdx18 laptop and a htpc connected together through a bt ethernet router. Every time i connect the laptop to the nas drive it starts to behave strangely.

1. It will not recognize any new upnp devices that i plug in such as external hard drives 
2. The printer stops working - all print jobs are queued until after a reboot
3. Software uninstall can take a very long time
4. The machine will not shut down. It hangs on the windows shutdown screen with the blue circle spinning.
5. The machine seems to become unstable and slowly grinds to a halt.

The trouble started happening when i installed the wd software. However, i cannot be sure it was this that caused the issue as i was changing other software at the time. At the time i was running vista 64 home premium. I have subsequently upgraded to windows 7 x64 hoping that would fix it - no joy.

Further clues are that i have recently bought a htpc and installed windows 7 and the wd software. This works fine and does not show the same symptoms. I do suspect that the registry of the laptop may have some corruption (at least that is what free registry check software says - i have not bought any software to fix the issues). Do you have any idea what is wrong?

The drive did not respond in a fixed time to the access attempt 1100:012a, 1100:022a, 1100:032a, 1100:042a. My cd/dvd drive stopped working. When i attempt to reinstall the driver, it fails. On the drive properties, i see "drive cannot start code 10". I have replaced the drive, and the sata data cable, and still have exactly the same problem. I have run the psa test and it revealed the error code listed int he title of this message.

Fixing Cd/dvd Drive

My cd drive has been missing for several weeks, and do not know exactly when it disappeared. I went through the deleting upper and lower filters as most places say, then rebooting, and it didn't help. I have created a new reg file and merged, and that brought the drives back, but they did not show that a cd was in. It has since disappeared again, and i do not have lowerfilters.

I have tried system restore, but i always get an error code because it "cannot access the file". I have updated the firmware from the dell website, and ran several different virus scans. Itunes and my computer say the drive is missing, but device manager says it is functioning correctly and completely updated. My dvd drive is there, it is only the cd drive. I am running windows 7, and have a dell inspiron 1750.

Also, i checked my brothers computer, who has the same set-up, and his registry files are all identical to mine, and his drive works just fine.

Dvd Drive Disappeared

My dvd drive disappeared even though i stopped making virtual dvd drives for iso images. I thought upgrading to windows 7 might resolve the 2 problems rpc sever is unavailable and the dvd drive not detected. I upgraded to ultimate as my computer is windows vista home basic. Its compaq. Sorry for bad spelling. When i want to make a partition rpc server is unavailable. Dvd drive is not in device manager. The hardware and devices troubleshooter thinks i have no dvd drive. I have no iso imaging programs now but i need one.

Cd/dvd Drive Has Gone Missing

I have a new computer with windows 7 professional 64 bit and everything was fine but now my cd/dvd drive has gone missing. It's nowhere to be found in explorer and if i insert a cd or dvd nothing happens. I tried the troubleshooter but it tells me i don't have a cd/dvd drive. It's also not listed in device manager. I'm a complete non-techie type of person but was wondering if my drive has just gone kaput or maybe one of the leads internally has become disconnected. The computer is only about 3 months old. I have done all the updates that have been recommended. I would love it if someone could give me some ideas about fixing this.

Dvd Drive Is Very Slow

I encountered another problem with my dvd drive " it does not work properly, as i can see root folder of dvd disk, but if i try to open any sub-folder or copy any file from root folder it freezes. For instance, i tried to start ms office 2007 installation from dvd but can't even execute setup.exe from root folder (was patiently waiting for 1+ hour).

After some research on the internet, i removed upper filter settings from windows registry (there is no lower filter). It helped a little bit, so i can see content of sub-folders (after 5-10 mins of waiting) but, still can't execute anything. Appreciate your help to fix it.

Computer details:

Msi p35 platinum, q6600, 4 gb ram, samsung sh222a, few sata hdds, nvidia geforce 9800 gtx
Windows 7 ultimate x64 (clean install from retail box)

Peripherals setup

Ide:
Master: internal dvd-rw, samsung sh222a
Slave: none
Sata:
Sata 3-7 various hdds (all seagate of various capacity from 750 gb to 1. 5 tb)
Raid: ide
P. S. The same setup works fine with windows xp

Ps. There are few files in sub-folders (winxp opens them in milliseconds). Also, i checked ide controllers, dma is enabeled for all drivers. Even log on win7 indicates tons of "error on cd drive during paging operation" events (no errors on winxp).

P. S. Cd cable is standard 40 pin, labeled as "ide cd cable" by manufacturer (asus). I've tried dvd in slave and cable select mode.
