Question about Gateway (5500778) Internal 32x CD-ROM Drive
I have XP as my OS and I have trouble with the CD- ROM: It does not recognize and disc that is inserted into it.
Okay first does "any disk" mean ANY disk, or any disk in the same pack of blanks ? Some cheap media has this problem.
If not, then you probably have a hardware problem.
Try checking Device Manager for flags. Report them here.
someone will know more .
If none, your optical drive may be bad.
I'm assuming "delete the drive and reboot" means uninstall the drivers Device Manager. Did they have any flags before ?
Make sure to enable "show hidden devices". You might have a non-plug & play device driver in conflict, and they are hidden.
What software are you using to burn disks ? There may be a problem with that. If there are no flags in device manager, uninstall the software (if it's Nero, Roxio or something). You can reinstall the software later.
