Cd drive stops resoponding when reading cds of any type it works after restarting pc, i updated the firmware, changed ATA cable but it doesn'work. please help.
It could be that it needs a lens cleaner or realigning, but try this and see if it cures it, sometimes it works. If it still persists go to my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager and go down the list to cd/dvd drives, click on the '+' and right click on your listed drive and select uninstall. restart the notebook and then the drive will be re installed with drivers automatically.
