Windows XP media edition, I have a cd-rom and a dvd writer on the same hp box. Both are showing up in the device manager, but neither one are working. They open and close, but that's it.
When a cd is inserted, the error message is "insert cd".
Three errors in a row in event viewer:
usb/ide service failed to start due to the following error:the service cannot be started, either because it is disabled, or has no enabled devices associated with it.
2)the WinDriver service failed to start due to the following error:the system cannot find the file specified
3)the following boot-drive or system -driver(s) failed to load
about 20 seconds before that, there's one that says : the server's call to a system service failed unexpectedly.
All worked well for nine months before last week!
