Question about Computers & Internet
Suddenly , since yesterday lunchtime, my DVD RW on Drive D:/ isn't working ..it doesn't recognize that a disc is in the drive .... I tried re-starting my machine . I even tried a roll-back to a point before luch !
I tried uninstalling and then re-installing the device . I tried updating the driver. It tells me the driver is up to date. The Windows Vista Device Manager tells me '' this device is working properly'' ...but ...it isn't !! Can anyone help ??
Yes; the drive will need to be replaced.
As far as the "device is working properly"...it is a misnomer. By that, windows means that it can see and communicate with the device, but it doesn't know if the laser inside the device has failed (likely, since it can't see a disc in the drive). You just need to pick up a replacement DVDRW (around $20 or so) and replace it.

Hello my friend kindly turn off your computer then unplug all the power cord connected to your power source then open your system unit and uplug your IDE or SATA cable from your CD/DVD RW then plug it properly then close your system unit then try to plug all the power cord and try to turn on your computer then go to CMOS Setting then load the default setting then restart your computer. Try to do this steps 2 - 3 times. If the result is still the same kindly ask or find a technician in computer in your place to have some assistance tand let that person help you fix your problem.
If you need more assistance kindly reply to this post.
