I recently bought a Pioneer DVR-109D to put in my new rig. On most occasions, it functions properly. However, sometimes it will announce its id on bootup as "Pinnder(sic) DVD-RW DVR-008 0.01". At the times when it calls itself that, it will not show up as a drive in Windows.
I have upgraded to the 1.17 firmware, but that didn't seem to change the problem. I also checked the connections and they were fine. Is anyone else experiencing this problem?
