My Lenovo Laptop has XP-Pro and has developed a problem of not recognizing CD or DVD when inserted. The drive is Optiarc AD-75605. It used to work fine. I have reinstalled the system from scratch but no change. I ran Mats_Run.dvd as recommended by Microsoft and uninstalled/auto installed the device drivers but still not working. When I use Nero for burning Video, it keeps coming up with the windows to insert the blank media even though I have the media inserted. However, if I put the system in standby while it is looking/searching for the media and then wake up the system, it recognizes the media most of the time. Also it displays the autoplay window of what I want to do. It used to display this autoplay window whenever I insert any kind of media. Now it does not.
Device is recognized fine in every applications and there is no yellow warning in the Device Manager.
