Need a driver for a Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-K17

Hi. I have a HP laptop that uses a Pioneer DVR-K17 that doesn't have a digitally signed driver, which is fine, except when trying to install Itunes, it errors out saying - incomplete install. DVD driver not digitally signed. I have unistalled and reinstalled, no go. The only way to get around the driver error is to hit OK. But that doesn't fix it. I'm looking online and it looks as if alot of people have the same issue regarding finding the drivers.

Typically you don't need drivers for any CD-ROM drives. What O/S are you running.  That may help narrow down the path to take.

XP SP 3. It has a driver installed, but even when I go into Device Manager, it says the driver is not digitally signed, which is OK, but Itunes is failing.

YEs CD/DVD drives typically do not need drivers even in XP.  I would suggest that you look at the iTunes install as this may be that actual culprit.  If you are attempting to install from a CD/DVD and it is not working use a downloaded copy on a thumb drive or straight from the net.

Tried both a network install of a older version and a new version right from Apple.

Try reverting your device driver back to the previous driver.  Another thing you could try is:

What's the exact error you get?

I think the device has malware/spyware causing havoc. I haven't ever seen Itunes act like this before, and he is having some other random issues on the device, so I'll try to get rid of that prior to messing w/ this.

Thank you all for you help.
