I'm new to this site and I have a question I hope has an easy answer.
Before I get started, let me throw out some personal info:
I'm a 40 year old, fairly intelligent computer novice that uses an e-machines desktop computer with microsoft xp operating system. I've had it for about 3 years and for the first 2 3/4 years I didn't have an acceptable firewall, anti-virus program, utilities cleaners etc.. Through trial and error, reading and hard work, I finally cleaned up my computer of all the crap that was taking my computer 15 minutes to boot up (I'm not sure that is an exagerration!) I now have Zone alarm firewall, Eset nod 32 antivirus, and CCleaner and glary utilities cleaners to keep all this crap clean and organized. I have used numerous other virus programs, cleaners, and spyware removers as well. My problem is that my computer is running so well that I want to save it on a maxtor one touch external device but can't. For some reason, My internal cd/dvd drive isn't connecting to the rest of my computer. I'm not sure if I "cleaned" something by accident. I'm sure this is a simple fix, but it's outside my knowledge. The lights for cd drive come on, and an internal check of maxtor system says that's working fine
Any help would be appreciated
