    TheST9120824A ATA Device is your hard drive. The other is your DVD drive. Are you saying that one of these doesn't work part of the time (files won't open or take too long to open, errors on start up or when opening files, repeated rhythmic ticking noises when you try to open a file or program, etc.)? If you have one of these symptoms with the hard drive, and you are confident that your system is not infected with a virus or Trojan Horse (fix this first!), than get an external storage device (USB flash drive or hard drive) ASAP and back up your critical documents. Some day very soon your hard drive will quit completely, and your documents will be gone. Your Device Manager properties may say it's working properly, but that only happens at a time when the hard drive is working (you can't load the System control panel if it isn't!). The driver routines for the hard drive and optical drive are built into your operating system, so if there are any updates, they would probably be included in a Windows Update.

    What device is only working here and there? The hard drive or DVD drive?

My Optiarc DVD RW AD-7530A ATA Device will not recognize discs


This is a common problem and is caused by build up on the disc laser light, you can buy a cleaning disk for it that will clean the lazor light try that first ten if it won't read or even before your option go to windows update and update to the new media player, some of the new updates has stopped dvd players from working. Give thanks to RIAA for this one. And if that don't fix it go to start control panel right click on optical devices and right click on the dvd RW and remove the driver restart it Will detect it again and should ask if you want to look for a new driver for it if it does not look for it or does not detect the device then you have a hardware problem, a bad cable or a bad DVD burner.

Driver


Hello,

Is this a windows XP or Vista unit? You are getting that because either the driver is still not installed or you have installed an incompatible driver for your CDROM.
