You might try Windows to search for drivers. It seems you hardware is OK but you have a software problem.
Good day everyone! My problem is: My cd dvd player is not working. I put a cd in it and it doesn't show a cd as being in it. The only way I can make it work is if I put cd in and then restart computer. It worked just fine up to a couple of days ago. I can click on my computer and it shows both dvd and cdrw as there, and if I have a disk in it shows that also but if I eject it and put another disk in it does't work unless I restart computer. I have windows XP Pro. This is also the same for my cdrw drive. When I go into device manager it shows both devices working properly. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thankyou for your help.
