a friend gave me a pioneer dvd drive and a cd rw drive but he didnt know where the software discs were. i hooked them up and the dvd drive, when i attempt to play a dvd, says i need dvd softwre installed. what kind are they talking about.the cd burner starts the burning prosess but right before it finishes it ejects the cd and saysthat the prosess could not continue and the disc may not be usable any more. i just boughtthe discs so i dont think that it is them. maybe someone could help me out.
