It sounds like the software update fubar'd the machine. I would suggest contacting the company who made the machine and asking them for help. Or it's possible that a firmware update is needed.

You can try this, Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete. Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers. Try using it again, hopefully fault free.

Windows XP and Vista have built-in support for reading/writing CD/DVD disks -- you don't need a "device-driver" at all.

If you want FREE software to make it easier to collect files and burn CD/DVD disks, access http://www.MajorGeeks.com
and download 'AShampoo Burning 6', and install it.

It is only compatable for CD RW.
Not DVD RW.

In a laptop drive, there is a small hole in the door near the "open" button. Gently push a straightened-out paper clip into the hole and the drive will open.

In full-size drives used in desktops, the hole is usually under the tray. Again, push a straightened-out paper clip into the hole to open the tray. Once the tray slides out you can open it the rest of the way by hand.

it is surely driver problem, go and get al the rivers of your system or download drivers of your system from the respective website

Teac... | Answered on Jan 30, 2010


Is this a new problem--ie it was working before? Or is this a newly installed drive?

If it is newly installed then the jumpers are not set correctly. Check that the jumper on the drive is set correctly--Cable select, slave or master as approriate
