Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
I inserted a cd into my cd drive to rip music using Windows Media Player and discovered that I no longer have a CD drive. The message in WMP read: "A CD drive is needed in order to rip music from CDs". I checked my Device Manager and found that I have "Optiarc cd-rw crx880a ata device" for my DVD/CD-ROM drive. I double-clicked, and the message in the General tab reads: "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" A have used my CD drive many times, the last time I used it was in March or April. What could have happened to disable usage of my DVD/CD-ROM and how can I get it restored? Thanks in advance.
Did you try to click "Troubleshoot" on the page that reported "cannot start" ?
Did you try to click on the device, and choose "uninstall" ?
Then, rebooting Windows should cause Windows to "find new hardware", and properly configure the DVD/CD drive.
