Hello, I have been seeking the aid of almost everyone I know about this, but nobody can figure out whats wrong :cry:. I'm not sure if this is even the right forum or community, but I hope one of you might have some insight.
A certain program I have requires me to put in the CD for it to start up. So I put it in, but then program freezes on its startup screen, the cursor is the loading cursor, and the cd drive light is on and the computer is making lots of noise searching the CD or something, and it stays like this for about 1 minute, and then it stops and says CD cannot be found. The program works fine on all my other computers, so the CD is not broken. I also uninstalled the CD drivers and reinstalled them, to no avail. Additionally, I'm not quite sure the problem is even CD related at all, as I copied the CD to my computer and used a CD emulator and it still gives me the error "CD cannot be found", although the error comes up much faster when I use the emulator and doesnt search the drive for a minute. Anyway, other programs of the same type work fine, so I have no idea what is wrong. I even got the program to run once in like 20 tries, without doing anything differently, but can't get it to work again. I reinstalled countless times and no difference. Lastly, after I get the error, the cd drive no longer functions until I restart the computer and I have to manually eject my CD with a paperclip. The computer has had some other problems, mainly overheating ( I just got a new fan + heat sink). That's all for background I guess, I hope somebody might know whats up : /
