My internal DVD +/- drive is not behaving at all and it is making me go mad! When I put a CD/DVD (anything) in the drive the little green light goes on for two minutes and then stops...but then when I try to open the drive by clicking on the icon it tells me to insert a cd..even when one already is in. This is a problem that has progressed from being an occasional occurence to being a total everytime thing. My PC is only 4 months old. This is why I am starting this as a new post because unlike the previous thread, my PC is rather new.
I have tried uninstalling the driver and installing it again (win XP) but the same problem. The diagnostic tool tells me that it should be working...but it isn't. I have spent hours on forums trying to find some help but to no avail....I have even attempted everything I can from a similar post here. please help me. Cheers, Phil
PS my drive is a Samsung writemaster. (TSSTcopr CD/DVDW TS-H552B)
