Whats up everyone, I have a puzzler.
I've been working on a co-workers laptop, A gateway M-6750 with a Core2 Duo @ 1.67GHz, 3gigs of ram, running windows vista 32-bit sp2 and full updates. The problem we've been having is that it will not recognize CDs\DVDs that are placed in the drive(an Optiarc DVD-RW AD-7563A). Heres what we've treid updated every driver, uninstalled the drive through device manager reboot let it auto detect, searched for firmware updates(don't exhist?), pulled the drive out boot with it out then poweroff and reboot with it in again letting it autodetect, uninstall and reinstall with no reboot. All to no avail, having searched online a bit I see that many people have had trouble with these particular drives, but I am hopeful that someone here may know something else I can try to make this thing work.
