My cd rom and dvdr drives are not recognized on my computer anymore. I found out when i tried to burn a dvd, is there anything that can fix this? I went to hardware in the control panel and tried to update it and to roll it back. Has anyone had this problem? Any suggestions would be nice

thanks.

Something is wrong with your drives or the components that control them. First step would be to download new motherboard/chipset drivers - then uninstall the old one's and install the new ones. This may solve the problems - but let us know your results. If necessary we can try other fixes.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
