    DVD Drive does not work after Windows update Feb 2021


    Two days ago, my LaCie DVD RW worked happily in the USB on my Windows 10 pcPC 1. I completed the rather lengthy update to Windows 10 PC1 yesterday, and now the DVD RW will not work saying "Driver Error".


    I have two other Windows 10 pcs PC2, PC3, and the DVD RW still works happily with both PC2 & PC3 - neither PC2 nor PC3 has received the update.

    .

    I tried two other USB devices with the first mentioned PC1, and both work satisfactorily.


    I am not an expert, but it seems that something to do with the update has caused the problem. Can you please offer any suggestions

    :)

    DVD Drive issues.

    The games used to run, now apparently the disks don't even read.

    Go to Device Manager and remove the DVD
    Scan for hardware changes and update driver as OS suggests

    Still not working?

    1) Clean the heads.
    2) Run a diagnostic program on the drive.

    Nothing else has changed about your system aside from the OS?

    Revert to XP Home, assuming you don't find the source of the problem in steps above.

    DVD Drive does not work after Windows update Feb 2021

    Windows 7 Professional keeps dropping the DVD/CD drive

    Working with a fresh install (2nd attempt) of Windows 7 Professional on new hardware. The motherboard is a Gigabyte EP45-UD3P. Running 4G of RAM and an Intel Q9400 Quad Core CPU. The DVD/CD optical drive is a Pioneer DVR-218L.

    Here's the problem - after two fresh installs, Windows 7 drops the DVD/CD drive and I get the following error in Device Manager (The device cannot start {code 10}). After the install, the drive works for a period of time, then stops working and I get the error code.

    The driver appears to be a standard Windows driver (CD-ROM driver).

    I've tried uninstalling the drive and re-installing it in Device Manager but it does not work - I continue to get the device error.

    I've also swapped out the DVD/CD drive to insure it's not a bad unit. Same problem with both drives.

    What do you suggest for next steps?? Could it be an issue with the motherboard?? A driver problem?

    I visited the Pioneer web site - could not find any help or additional Windows 7 drivers.

    What now??
