Hi there I have been living with a problem with my computer for ages now and thought that maybe someone here could give me a bit of help.
my cd/dvd drive does not read or write to any discs. It has been this way for quite sometime and I now desperately need my drive to work so I can fix my ms office apps with the cd.
When I put a CD into the drive I get the little cd icon on the desktop for a minute or so and the light on the drive flashes for a while and then everything stops. It doesn't matter if it is a music cd, software or a blank.
If I go to my computer and click on the d: drive it asks me to put a disc in the drive when there is a perfectly fine disc already in there.
My drive is a HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4521B and the driver seems to be up to date.
I am running XP sp2 on a Asus K8N-E Deluxe MB and 512 ram.
I used to have Nero installed as well as a different program (don't remember the name), they are no longer on the computer.
If there is someone out there who can help me I would be much appreciated, thanks.
