Hi all. I’m having a problem with my Pioneer DVDRW-DRTD08HB after doing a fresh install of Windows 7. I have already deleted Upper and Lower Filters but still not working. It shows up in My Computer and in Device Manager but if I insert a DVD or CD the drive spins at top speed and can’t eject or stop it and the DVD drive disappears from My Computer. I asked Microsoft and they said I need to change some registry values. I’ll copy the email they sent me below:

These are the keys I think are the ones in question - for the CD/DVD drive sub-keys of course
as there will other sub-keys in these keys. Be sure to ask for specific keys involved as well as
the settings.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\IDE

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Hardware Profiles\0001\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\IDE

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

If anyone knows how to solve this please let me know! Thanks

That is a slimtype drive.

Install the OS with all drivers from the CD/DVD that came with the LAPTOP!
