I recently upgraded my computer from WinME to WinXP Pro and now the DVDRom doesn't recognized DVD disc anymore. It's a Pioneer DVD-ROM DVD-116R.

I can't figure out if it's hardware or driver/firmware problem. I tried firmware but it didn't help and there are no drivers out there that I've found.

Does anyone know a solution? It worked for a few minute after installing XP. Sad

Hey CrazyJo

Have you searched the Pioneer website? http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/

They might have a driver update.

Yes, I went and searched for it. All they had were drivers for older versions of windows and firmware which it didn't help.

My dvdrom is just registered as a "CD-ROM" by the CPU after upgrading to XP. So, I wonder if there're some hardware conflict or if I did something wrong during the ME --> XP upgrade...

Do you have an install disk for the Cd-rom.  If so, try re-installing the current driver.  It's worth a try.

The drive can still read CDs without a problem?
It's possible your DVD laser gave out. If it can still read CDs without a problem, then that's because the CD laser is a seperate one from the DVD laser. No amount of shaking will bring a bust DVD laser back to life.

But if you suspect it isn't the drive, there's only two ways of checking:
1) Put in another DVDROM. If it works out of the box, the old one was bust.
2) Test the old one in another PC. If it can't read DVDs there either, it's bust.

It's fixed. It turns out I just needed a new DVDplayer program in the computer.
