how's the cable? - fj
I was having problems with my cd drive - sometimes wasn't reconised, sometimes wouldn't open, most of the time didn't reconise that there was a CD in it and often flashed and made whirring noises which froze the whole computer.
After a little research (on this site and other tech help sites) I decided it was time for a new drive.
The new drive worked like a dream until the first restart - now it treats every CD as though it is blank - it appears to attempt to read it, but decides that it is blank - so does nothing. It is recognising that there is a CD in it and opens fine every time- more than what the old drive was doing.
Does any one have any idea what might be going on and how I can fix it?
My system is Windows ME
