    Please tell me what version of windows you are running and if you had any bad reboots or added any new programs or hardware to the computer immediately prior to this happening *S*

    Thank you

Some how your BIOS got turned around, turn your computer off and back on, when your screen pops up for setup press the appropriate F-Key to setup. At the bottom of your screen you will have choices, Enter Default Settings and Exit. Reboot the computer and that should do it for ya. If It don't, Install a new copy of Windows, it knows your drive is there and it needs a new System Disk to read. Good Luck.

The DVD/CD drive on my Medion 8830 PC no longer burns


Have you changed or upgraded your OS recently?
Looks like the drivers are corrupt or out-dated.
Might go to your computer mfg support site or the Drive mfg support site and download the latest drivers.
Uninstall whatever drivers are loaded reboot and reinstall fresh copies.
