I need help!! My cd player stopped working when I was copying a CD in Easy Creator CD 4. When I insert a CD now, the light is green then it turns orange blinking repeatedly. I shut down the computer, unplugged the cords. Started it up again & still no luck. This is the original program which came with computer. Can you help? Thank you!

Read your post and not enough was written. CDRW drives do age and "stop working." This is not a pricey item. In fact, you can pay more for CD len cleaner than a new drive with newer software.

Does the drive read CDs?

Thanks for your reply. No, the drive is not reading CDs. This is where the light is turning orange & blinking repeatedly. Do I have to replace the hard drive?

CDRW yes, Hard drive? Not according to your post.

When you get your new CDRW, be sure to uninstall Adaptec Easy CD 4 before you begin the install to ease the install of the new CD recording software.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
