Pioneer DVD-116



anyone got any xp drivers for the pioneer dvd-116 dvdrom? i cant get this thing to play dvds, itll just play regular cds.


it says "There is no MSCDEX.EXE Copy it to the drive from the DOS disk." what dos disk? how do i get this file?
Do you have any DVD software loaded? Without it ( PowerDVD or WinDVD) you will not be able to play DVD's. Both have free trials that can be used for 30 days to see which one you will like. The other drivers are for making the cdrom available under dos and will not allow you to view any dvd's.

i have the 116 too without any probelms
i use powerdvd 4.0
i remember having some problem in winDVd... it could be mscdex related but i cant remember.

best thign is to put a dvd in, and check in windows explorer if it 'see's the dvd... you should be able to see hte contents of it

if it works, you know it can read dvds and its just software problem


it wont read them at all. i open windows explorer and click on the drive and it says to insert a disk because it thinks nothing is in there. damn the pioneer.

delete the dvdrom from device manager and reboot
let it re-add it
also change to Master IDe2 see if that helps

if not it does sound like a dead drive
does bios dtect it?
use a windows98 bootdisk with cdrom support to see if it dtects cds in dos mode

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
