...it should be noted that i uninstalled and attempted to reinstall the drive. The Add Hardware Wizard program is able to find the drive again, but says that it is corrupted.
Does this mean go buy a new one?
I came home today to copy some cds I had just bought, which is a typical event, and I attempt to use the RecordNow program that comes standard with the XP Home Edition package. When I tried, an error window popped up saying "No Compatible Recordable or Rewritable devices could be found on your system."
I went into My Computer and the E: icon is missing completely. I did NOTHING different to the computer to make this happen--I haven't installed any new programs and my computer is free of viruses.
Someone please help me!!
