The drive will recognize a cd with music or photo files, but it will not play them when you click on a file. It will not recognize a DVD at all. The Drive shows up in my computer and under Hardware in My Computer properties. I have checdk for newer drives and Windows say none are found that are a better match. I have flashed the drive with updated firmware as seems to be the popular thing to do when you Google this problem and that didn't make a difference. I used this file: 200401281824231532_U204COM_0112
I have updated Windows XP Home and PowerDVD but nothing seems to make a difference. Maybe the drive is just junk. I am not for sure. Thank you for any help.

Have you tried the drive on a different IDE connector?

Try uninstalling it in the Device Manager and reboot the computer, the installation wizard should recognize it as new hardware and find the appropriate drivers for it. Sometimes the drivers become corrupted and just need to be reinstalled.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

It is in a laptop which I know little about but I did not know there were other places to connect it, and I am sorry if I did not mentionn the laptop part. I did uninstall and remove from hardware and let xp find it again and reinstall the drivers. Same thing hsppens. It spins and the light comes on, but it won't actually do anything with cd data. And it won't recognize DVD data.

Start with this first. If it doesn't help there are other things to try. Back up your registry before trying this.

Open regedit and browse to this entry.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}. .

Delete the keys named UpperFilters and LowerFilters and reboot.

(You may only have one of them. That's okay.)

I don't have anything that reads like that in that location or any of its subkeys.
