My D Drive has stopped working, it simply doesn`t recognise any disks, when I click on the drive it says "insert Disk in D Drive"
The system info says the device is working properly, I have tried uninstalling and re-installing but still nothing. Can anyone suggest anything. Thanks

it usually means that the sd/mmc card is not formatted with a file system recognised by windows, or is not formatted at all, or is faulty. however, sd/mmc is not a disk, so it sounds like either you are confused, or your optical drive is using the same drive letter as the mmc or sd port. If that is so, right-click on my computer, go to manage computer - then disk management. select the optical drive right click and select change drive letter and paths. now pick an un-used drive letter for the optical drive and apply the change. you may need to restart the computer. then the optical drive should work.
You haven't specified what version of windows you are using, but the action is roughly the same.
When the flash memory USB hard drive device appears to malfunction it maybe possible to restore it by reformatting it. Insert the flash or USB hard drive into the USB port then Click on Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management. Then right click on Disk 1 removable drive and click Format. After the flash drive has been formatted it will indicate that it is Healthy. NOTE Formating the USB flash drive will delete your data.
Sometimes when a flash memory stick fails because it was not removed from the USB port properly. If the device is removed by just pulling it out of the USB port, it can cause the flash device to fail, you must click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon on the Task Bar and select the device you wish to remove and only do so when instructed to do so.

Can you see the information on the CD/DVD from Windows Explorer? (NOT Internet Explorer). Some CD's/DVD's just won't recognize correctly from Auto Play. If you can see what's on the disk (in Windows Explorer) try double clicking the Setup.exe or Run.exe from there and see if it loads. I have the same problem on some of mine.
Assuming you are using a Cruzer Micro Drive with U3 Smart, things can be a little confusing because the drive actually shows up as two independent devices. When you insert the drive, there should be two devices showing up in your list of drives. One of them is installed as a CD Rom Drive and the other one is a Removable Drive. If you double click on the CD Rom Drive instead of the Removable Drive and you don't have any U3 applications mapped to the CD Rom Drive, then you'll get an insert disk message because Windows thinks that the CD Rom Drive is empty. Just use the Removable Drive if you want to simply install and transfer files.
