    my computer does not detect my cd's

  • tally za May 11, 2010

    thanks for the suggestion, but it did not work. no conflicts are reported, the device manager correctly identifies the drive. If i put a cd into the drive, the device reads it, it even seems to read some dvds. just got a new game - it shows the drive as dvd-ram and will not read the disc??
