Ok this is really starting to annoy me now. :trumpet:
For some reason my DVD and CD Roms are being asswipes and not working how they should. E.g. they would initiate auto run things or refresh icons properly or even identify blank discs unless through a program. :thumbsup:
I have tried looking for new drivers etc but cant be stuffed googling them!! and windows is taking forever in it's 'search'. :flowers:
So I was just wondering is there any way to totally reinstall the drivers or magically fix them? I think there is a problem with the windows registry information which woould explain the consistancy of uslessness between the drives so is there a way to refresh CD/DVD protocol in windows?
Alternatively I'd appreciate a link to a site where I can get the drivers.
Please help this is really grinding my gears!!!!!!!!!! :inlove:

windows xp and atapi dvd-rw , lite-on cd-rw

Have you done the basics.

Check device manager - any yellow warning symbols? Whether or not there are:

Right click on each drive in Device Manager, select uninstall and reboot.

Check device manager to see there are no yellow warnings.

Or you could try the automated fix-it program

this is really grinding my gears!!!!!!!!!!

Perhaps it's the influence of the evil monkey.
