Pioneer DVR-105 - Not Recognizing DVDs
 
Hey guys,

Hoping someone can help me. I've had a Pioneer DVR-105 DVD burner for
six months or so now, and its worked fantastically well up to this
point.

But out of the blue, yesterday, it failed to recognise anything I put
in it. Custom made DVDs, commerical dvds, cds, nothing. Device Manager
and My Computer both have it as being there, but nothing pops up (I
use WinXP Pro) when a disc is inserted, and no disc is found when I
click on the drive.

I've noticed recently, actually, that if I'm burning something (I use
Nero) that I had this problem (temporarily) when I put a blank disc in
and then ask the program to burn before the blank DVD is recognised.
After that, it doesn't recognise anything unless I reboot.

Now it never recognises anything. I've tried uninstalling it, and
letting XP find it again. Still nothing. Tried seeing if there is a
firmware update or driver update, nothing.

The only thing, slightly out of routine I've done, before this
happened, was run a Spyware Blaster program to kill all my spyware. I
can't imagine this has anything to do with it.

Incidentally, my CD burner works just fine. What can I do? I haven't
done anything crazy like "flash" my drive.

Please advise. Hopefully this may be a common problem.

Joel.

Happened with my Optorite DD0203 a week or two ago.
Sent it back for an RMA replacement.

Since yours is under a year old, I'd think that you could do the same.

I have just had the same problem with my DVR 106 - I sent it back to
Pioneer and they sent me back a DVR 107 in exchange - terrific service.

have you got an address or contact number for pioneer returns?
my 106 has been playing up recently and a 107 as a replacement would be
great!
