CD drive doesn't work
    #1387646 - 03/18/03 10:59 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

My CD drive doesn't work. When I put a cd in the light just keeps blinking orange. The device manager sais it's working properly, but it obviously isn't. Do any of you computer geeks know what might be wrong, or tell me what to look for. I used to be into computers too, so I should know what your're talking about up to a point, you know. All help is greatly appreciated.

I think you may be on to something. I just want to know what I can do to find out what fucked it, and then what I can do to remove the dick from it's butt.

did you try removing it from the device manager and then restarting to re-install default drivers?

have you toyed with roxio easy cd-creator lately? I ran into some major CD-ROM problems running that with windows xp

If I do that will the cpu automatically recognize and install the cd drive when I restart it?

CD/DVD drives have to be the most unreliable component ever, my guess is it's hardware-broken.... I think I've gone through half a dozen drives in the last six years.

Yes, it should be automatically be reinstalled at restart.
