I have windows 7 and my cd burner had been working up until last week. I have tried to get help from windows but that was a JOKE! I don't know if it's a driver or what. Any suggestions?


Probably not a driver issue, but you can try and burn something IMGBURN - just google it.

Maybe your burner died, could be a loose/bad signal cable (IDE/SATA) or power cable.

CD/DVD burner stopped working


I had the same problem on my Sony Vaio and I found a free program called "CD Tray Pal" You just click on the desktop icon and it loads and windows recognizes your drive. Amazing, after a while, it fixed itself and I did not have to use it anymore! Hope this helps. http://www.e-systems.ro/ You should be able to find it on this site.

DVD-RW drive not detected in my laptop by SOME software


I am asuming your using XP, this happened to me a few years ago, i searched google and found a forum that had instructions on editing a registry key to fix the problem but i wasn't able to see the drives in the device manager at all, so check that first and make sure they are there and try reinstalling the device drivers,using windows update or manually search for newest version of the drivers, if all that fails try reinstalling the applications your having issues with, if that fails you can try getting another application to replace the ones that aren't working, try alcohol 120% or Nero, those are about the best out especially a120 however it would require a purchase.
