I have a BDC-202 player attached to an ACER PC (M3641). It was working.
Now the device has disappeared from 'my computer'.
When I look at the Device Manager it tells me the driver is corrupt (Code 39).
When I try to update the driver it says the driver is up to date.
If I uninstall and re-install the device I get the same error.
The Pioneer website tells me the drivers are generic MS drivers built into Vista. The Pioneer website only provides firmware updates.
Can anyone tell me where I can download a 'fresh' copy of the MS generic drivers? (Vista Home Premium - 32bit)
Thank you.
George.

I had a problem with my BDC-202: iTunes had installed a filter driver that somehow got corrupted.

Uninstalling iTunes fixed the problem.

Blu-ray: 50+
HD-DVD: 23
DVD: 600+ and lost count

Known vista bug. Registry hack fixed it for my brother's machine: http://www.randomfix.com/2007/04/12/...dvd-rom-drive/
Try google "vista optical drive fix"

Thank you for the suggestion.
I will need to get some expert help to go edit the Registry.
I will report back when it's done.
Much appreciated.
George.

iTunes isn't the only source of filter driver problems.

Blu-ray: 50+
HD-DVD: 23
DVD: 600+ and lost count

At last.
It worked!!!! Deleted the two 'filter' entries and now the drive is working again. Thank you to all the above.
BUT
Please, if you have a spare minute, can anyone give me a simple explanation of how deleting two lines in the registry can re-enable a DVD drive?
Just some hint as to the logic of what is going on? Nothing deep.
It really bugs me that I have NO IDEA of what is going on
