Hi there,

XP can no longer recognize new CDs in my DVD drive.

I just noticed this a bit ago as I needed to save a few files before battling viruses, malware, etc. Since I couldn't do the saving, I loaded files to a webserver. But I REALLY like having them in house and "hard copy".

After cleaning up (with help of BleepingComputer.com forum :)

I was advised to delete the device & then restart my computer. That didn't help.

Also, I noticed that on the properties tab of my DVD device ... there is no longer a Restore tab as I have read about.

The drive can read files from CDs that already have data on them.

Can you help?

Are there any yellow exclamation points on any devices?

Yellow exclamation points on the Device Manager page?
