DVR-1910LS Has worked great for first 2 months, then would not read or recognize any kind of disc

[qanda]This question is published in the hardware section for the Pioneer DVR-115D / DVR-1910. Click here to view full specs.[/qanda]I have only had this for about 3 months, and it suddenly would not recognize any kind of DVD, and occasionaly would be unable to eject without using the little release hole. Best Buy said could not check this out without bringing in the whole tower, which obviously is a pain . Any suggestions???

Couple of things you can try first:

  1. Try a different 80-conductor IDE cable.
  2. Go to Device Manager and delete the channel that the burner is on (be sure which one it is). Reboot and let the O/S rebuild the driver.
  3. Try a different computer.

Thanks for the advice. I’m dumb as a rock on this stuff, but my Son’s
friend helps us out. I will hope this weekend he can work on this. Will
let you know. Thanks again.
