Question about Packard Bell GCD-R580B (gcdr580b) Internal 8x CD-ROM Drive
My Cd drive, bundled with my Packard Bell computer will open and close, is detected, but won't read CDs. When I try to open a cd, It asks to put in a cd. The only Cd that has worked was a laser lense cleaner. I have Windows me, and my computer is about 6 years old. How can I fix the problem?
