Can't enable drive in Device Manager


I’ve got a Pioneer DVR-109 drive which has been disabled by Windows (code 22) and I can’t enable it. It started acting up when I flashed my LG burner in the same machine, so I am guessing that the Pioneer firmware may have been messed with.

I have tried to use both the Pioneer firmware upgrade utility and DVRFlash, but they both can’t detect the device (I guess since it is disabled). :sad:

Can you think of anything that can reflash the drive, or should I just get it checked out under warranty before doing something stupid?


Have you already tried to delete the relevant IDE channel in device manager and reboot?

Thanks so much, that fixed it! I had tried to remove the CD device itself, but not the IDE channel driver. :slight_smile:

You’re welcome :slight_smile:
