    Yesterday I finaly recieved my Pioneer DVR-A05, I put it in my computer and turned it on. Windows xp detected immediatlyand installed it. Then I installed Instant copy 6.5 to see what it was like. I didnt like it so I unistalled it, restarted my computer and then to my horror both my DVD rom drive and my pioneer didnt appear in the my computer devices section. I have reinstalled the windows ASPI drivers but it still comes up with the same error 'Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)'.

    can anyone help?

    double check your connections, or unplugg and replug in the device. See what that does.

    Is it the only drive on the IDE chain? If so is it master?

    It is the only drive on the IDE chain and is set as slave.

    unless you use something else than standard PC, it have to be set as master
    any single device on any IDE channel must be set as master (or CS - "computer select" - if your motherboard has appropriate chipset).

    After you have properly set the physical ide connection, go to the control panel, system,hardware,device manager and see if the DVD drive is listed. If it is delete it and restart your PC. When XP comes up it should find the device and reinstall the drivers.
    There's not much to do but then I can't do much anyway.

  10. Copy / Paste the following into Notepad, save it as "NoFilter.reg" (yes, you need to save with the "" or it will name it NoFilter.reg.txt), then right-click the file (save it on your desktop) and choose "Merge".

    --begin--don't copy this line--
    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}]
    "UpperFilters"=-
    "LowerFilters"=-

    --end---don't copy this line--

  11. You may need to install any CD/DVD burning software or CD/DVD emulation software (Alcohol 120%, CloneCD, etc). Actually, you might be able to get away with just removing the driver specific to instantCD/DVD from the upper/lowerfilters key at the registry location specified, but I'm not sure what the driver is called...
