I alos have another Vantec Samsung SH-S203N SATA dvd burner. And last I have 2 internal drives, one Pioneer PATA 115 and a SATA Samsung SH-203B. When i had Vista 64 bit, I had them working. Now it seems that I cannot get this Pioneer to work ro show up. I plugged my laptop to it, bingo it works, laptop has windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit. My system is 64 bit. I did the registry change, the integrity check. Dont know what else to do. Any advise please. Thanks
Ok i got it. I deleted all burners and rebooted, all showed up except the one i need, but i did not see it in devices/DVDROM Drives, but i saw it in other devices, click on look for update, BINGO it came up. But i also deleted the lowerfilters. I believe i need to reinstall anydvd since i saw it there. Let's hope it keeps showing. Thanks
