The Case of the disappearing DvD Writer



After installing Vista RTM after about a day of running a reboot was required
after the reboot both my dvd writers disappeared and weren't recognized by My
computer They both showed in device manager but with a yellow ! when I
clicked on the writers I got this detail
I will show only one set of details for 1 of my writers although both are
basically same explanation but for different writer models
Windows was able to successfully install device driver software, but the
driver software encountered a problem when it tried to run. The problem code
is 39.

Problem signature:

Architecture: x86
Hardware Id: IDE\CdRomPIONEER_DVD-RW__DVR-106D________________1.08____
Setup class GUID: {4d36e965-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}

Driver version: 6.0.6000.16386

As I have seen others with similar problems heres hoping someone can come up
with solution

My opinion on this after having many hardware devices lose or have limited
funtionality is.....wait for a new driver is about all you can do
unfortunately...whether the driver is from Microsoft or from the vendor of
the drive. I have a feeling we'll start seeing more updated drivers
mid-late december with many of the stable ones in Jan/Feb 2007. It's taking
the vendors time to write drivers for an OS they didn't have much access to least not all the access they needed. Fustrating...I know.
