Drive whirs and then stops, doesn't read or even recognize that a disc is in the drive.
This has been a persistent issue for over a year, but I haven't had a need of a CD drive. I figure it's about time to fix it since I'll be going back to school.
Updating drivers for each drive
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
This occurs when inserting any of the Dell branded CDs (Driver, Resource, etc) ? I need some information to investigate this. Send me the following via private message -
