Default Pioneer DVD Writer Disappears After Reboot - Vista RC1

Start, Run, type regedit and navigate to registry key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.
Highlight it and in the right pane, find the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters
values. Highlight each one in turn, right click and delete them. Close
regedit and restart the computer.

Just wondering whether anyone has experience issue with DVD writer
disappearing from Vista RC1 after rebooting. I have a Pioneer 111D installed
with a Liteon CD/DVD combo. When I restart my PC, either from a cold or warm
reboot, Vista can see my Liteon drive but not by Pioneer DVD writer. However,
If I go into DEVICE MANAGER and perform a SCAN FOR NEW HARDWARE, the Pioneer
DVD writer appears and seems to be working well. However, I have to perform
this action everytime I reboot my PC (that is, the Pioneer DVD writer does
not want to 'stick'). How can this be resolved?

Thanks in advance
