Hi! I need some help. I don't know a whole lot about technical computer terms, so please bear with me and try to keep replies simple enough for me to understand Thank you!
So, a relative of mine was using my computer to try to install a program on it and use it while I wasn't using my computer, and I wasn't in the room, so I have no idea what happened. But when I got back on my computer, they told me that the program didn't install and that they gave up trying. It looks like what they were trying to install is "Pinnacle Instant DVD Recorder" for Windows XP, and I have a Windows 10 so that is some quite outdated software there. But anyways, now the CD drive does not work. I can't find it through "This PC", and the shortcut I had to the drive gives me an error saying that the drive the shortcut refers to us unavailable. The logo from the program they were trying to install is still showing up in the shortcut, even when I insert a totally different disc in for a different program, the logo doesn't change. It stays the Pinnacle Studio logo.
I use my CD drive a lot, because I like PC gaming and have lots of games that are on discs. I'm not sure how to fix it. I tried restarting my computer, didn't work. How can I fix the drive if I can't even access it?
Thank you in advance!
