Internal DVD Writer Problem

I tried to copy some files to a CD today using my Pioneer Internal DVR-A 18M writer, using this method.

1. Insert a blank, writable CD into the CD recorder.

2. Open My Computer.

3. Click the files or folders you want to copy to the CD. To select more than one file, hold down the CTRL key while you click the files you want. Then, under File and Folder Tasks, click Copy this file, Copy this folder, or Copy the selected items.
If the files are located in My Pictures, under Picture Tasks, click Copy to CD or Copy all items to CD, and then skip to step 5.

4. In the Copy Items dialog box, click the CD recording drive, and then click Copy.

5. In My Computer, double-click the CD recording drive. Windows displays a temporary area where the files are held before they are copied to the CD. Verify that the files and folders that you intend to copy to the CD appear under Files Ready to be Written to the CD.

6. Under CD Writing Tasks, click Write these files to CD. Windows displays the CD Writing Wizard. Follow the instructions in the wizard.

When i try this method after getting to step 4 i get this error message F:\ is not accesssible Incorrect Function. The drive is obviously assigned an F drive. I can't figure this out, it's a plug and play device. I went to device manager>drive and selcted disabled then restarted my computer. Still i can't open the drive, can someone please help.

Did you chek the BIOS settings and cross check if the the DVD is assigned the F Drive.
Just do it again incase its already done and save it. I had this issue once it was fixed , by this method.

try upgrading the firmware of your device...also make sure to uninstall the drivers then check for hardware changes, it will reinstall the drivers for your diskdrive.

The insert the windows disk and run the command "sfc" system file checker it will change / replace the files with the windows genuine files in case the driver files have been changed.

Also you can do by going to the Drive letter in Windows Explorer and right clicking on it. Go to Properties; Click on Recording; Check "Enable CD recording on this drive". If it wasn't clicked before this will probably do it.
