Compal notebook ... problem with dvd.

Accidentally installed an incorrect driver from what i can see. a sis udma driver. so i have primary and secondary ide plus a udma driver. the dvd/cd rom is no longer recognized.
My question.... did the dvd die (which seems possible) or would it just be a conflict with the udma driver.
operating sytem is xp pro
I will answer any other requests for information that is required as promptly as i can.

Thanks for your time.

Robert

    I'll do that later this evening and rate your solution. removing the driver and doing a rescan just brings the same driver back. so i'll look for the driver for the cd/dvd.



    Thanks

Well in this case... its definitely a conflict... even if you un-installed the Udma drivers..... issue will be existing....

so... first you have to un-install the Udma drivers then.... reseat the cables on dvd..... your work would be done...

Try deleting the incorrect driver, then do a search for hardware. If that doesn't work, go to your computer manufacturer's website and download and install the correct driver to your cd/dvd. Then restart your computer. Your cd/dvd drive should be recognized then.

When I download a program an click to install it a box pops up saying the download I am trying to install is not a valid Win32 application. This is a new problem. I have not had any problems downloading in...


This error message could be caused by a number of things. Generally it's because the program being downloaded is corrupt or didn't download completely. Have you tried a different browser to do the downloads? If it's a very large download you may encounter problems with losing packets. A download manager may help.

Also, you may want to try doing a restore to system restore point to a date when you weren't having this issue. System Checkpoint dates (in bold) are usually very safe points to restore to. I would also recommend a virus scan and if you don't have this utility and are able to download and install it (yes I know that's your current problem, but you can download it to a flashdrive from a friend's comp and install it), I'd get Glarysoft Utilities and run the one-click maintenance which will fix any registry errors. It's free and is a great way to keep your machine running well.

If any of this helps correct your problem I would appreciate a rating. People here seem to take the help and don't show any appreciation by taking the time to rate the help.

Toshiba Satellite A105 PC Notebook, DVD/CD Drive. The Drive is reading the DVD but not the CD. How do I change the settings for the drive to read both


You can't just change it from pio to udma. Go to Control Panel, System,Hardware,Device Manager, then expand IDE ATA/ATAPI, then right click on Primary IDE and select uninstall. Do the same for secondary IDE. Then just reboot your system, and it will autodetect all IDE devices. After that when you check, you should not have any devices in PIO, and your burner should work correctly. If not, stick it in a hyperbaric chamber for 2 days and see if that helps. smile.gif __________________
