Okay. Yesterday I got my totally revamped computer back from the shop. Things work perfectly and I am totally pleased with the speed increase and everything else.
However. This morning I have a new problem, and it's making me totally crazy because there's really no reason for it as far as I can see.
For the past few weeks I've been backing up my DVD collection because I'm going back to college in the fall and I don't want to take my originals with me. So last night I backed up a DVD with absolutely no problem whatsoever. This morning, I tried to continue with my work, but --- and this is the part that has me scratching my head in confusion --- my drive isn't reading any discs. Nothing. Won't read CD-ROMs, audio CDs, or DVDs.
I checked the Device Manager; according to that, my drive is working properly. It's being recognized by the system, apparently, but the drive isn't recognizing or reading any discs.
When I put a disc into the drive, the little green light on the front of the disc flashes rhythmically a few times, but then stops.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
(For informational purposes, my DVD drive is an LG HL-DL-ST DVDRAM GSA 4163B. I'm running XP with an AMD Sempron processor and 512 MB of RAM.)
I'd really appreciate any advice!
