Question about Packard Bell GCD-R580B (gcdr580b) Internal 8x CD-ROM Drive
CD tray opens and closes fine, but would not read any form of CD or DVD. Also this drive is not recognised when I open ' my computer' ( ie the icon has disappeared)
Also when I check the drive in Device manager, I could see some yellow signs on the drive ( either yellow question mark or exclamation marks)
Can any body help with this.
