Pioneer DVD-Rom trouble

by sloriley / March 22, 2006 2:32 AM PST

I moved a Pioneer DVD-Rom 105, graphics card (ASUS V7700 ge-force) and software ASUS DVD 2000, from one computer where it was working fine to a Dell GX150 when I upgraded my computer. Both systems run win K2 prof. The DVD will now only play a CD. It will not play the DVD's that I know it played when installed on my machine. Any suggestions? SL

DVD reading

What type of DVDs are you trying to play? Are they movies or data type? When you place in a DVD movie, do you see the contents of the dvd in Windows Explorer?

Is a software DVD player installed?

The DVD's I've tried are DVD videos that played in it prior to moving it. Also I've tried some I wrote on DVD-R's that also played on it before the move. Nothing I've tried plays except CDs which work just fine.
Explorer does read data on the DVD's, but starting it from there isn't successful either.
The software that came with the reader is ASUSDVD 2000 which worked fine on my machine. On the DELL it gives me a "DVD Error Code 80070001 Incorrect function" (both machines running K2)
When I try PCFriendly that came on one of the DVD Video's it sounds like it's hung. Just goes on and on. If I then click to close the program it will tell me the program is "not responding" and I have to end it.
I have uninstalled both and reinstalled them but received the same errors. I even took it out and put it back in my machine and it plays there just fine with ASUSDVD 2000!
If you have any suggestions I'd sure like to hear them. I tried Pioneer and ASUS and got no where.

Other possibilities?

Have you tried other software DVD players?

Also, is the DVD on cable select, master or slave?

Some machines are just picky on cable select mode. Are you using the same data cable to connect to the DVD drive?
