    Have you tried the reovery console cd that is provided to you with the laptop. I think that with a repair your dvd drive will work again and you wont even have to install the driver for the drive.

    If your CD drive or DVD drive is missing or not recognized by Windows or other programs, so you cannot play or access a CD or DVD. This issue might have occurred after you installed, uninstalled, or updated a program or Windows XP.

    Click Start, and then click Run.
    In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
    In the navigation pane, locate and then click the following registry subkey:
    In the right pane, click UpperFilters.

    Note You may also see an UpperFilters.bak registry entry. You do not have to remove that entry. Click UpperFilters only. If you do not see the UpperFilters registry entry, you still might have to remove the LowerFilters registry entry. To do this, go to step 7.
    On the Edit menu, click Delete.
    When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click Yes.
    In the right pane, click LowerFilters.

    Note If you do not see the LowerFilters registry entry, unfortunately this content cannot help you any further. Go to the "Next Steps" section for information about how you can find more solutions or more help on the Microsoft Web site.
    On the Edit menu, click Delete.
    When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click Yes.
    Exit Registry Editor.
    Restart the computer.

    Here's the download link for your dvd writer:

    You can also try to remove the device of your Pioneer dvd writer from device manager and reboot. Windows should detect the device and automatically set it up.
