Question about MSI DR4-A DVD RW Burner
This just started happening one day and i have no idea what I did that caused it - if anything. Basically the drive will read and run any cd/dvd that is in the drive at boot. The drive shows in bios and in the device manager - if you remove the device and reboot it comes back under the correct name however the problem does not go away - as soon as you take the disk out and put another in, suddenly in 'my computer' it changes displayed icon to just a generic "cd-rom" tag. It will not auto play the disk - nor are you able to explore it or manually play or otherwise access it - in fact the entire dvd rw drive becomes unusable (still opens and closes and spools up though) So here's the problem broken down and simplified * boot computer with disk in drive; * disk loads and plays normally. * take out disk and insert new disk (or even the same disk) this also includes software installation disk swap prompts; * drive will now be unusable and non accessable. Device manager shows no problems while in this state even though the 'my computer' device discription is changed and you can no longer access the properties menu for the device from here. It's such a weird problem that even I don't know where to go with this one! any help would be very appreciated! :S
