Question about PC Laptops
My dvd-rw combo drive will not read cds any longer. Sometimes it does (i.e. after 200 tries). It will read any DVD and also write DVDs. How do I get it to read CDs again?
1)right clik on my computer
clik on cdrom
uninstall it then re-install it
after reinstall try using the drive
2)update windows ,use custom and see if it finds an updated driver,if it does or doesnt update windows anyhow.
after you restart the computer try using the rom drive.
if that doesnt work;
go buy a cd/dvd rom cleaning disk at your local electronics store and use it.
if all this doesnt work;
buy a new rom drive
