I have a Dell Inspiron 5000 with a Toshiba DVD-ROM. Yesterday the drive stopped recognizing CDs. I had used it the day before with no problems.
I have not installed any new hardware or software.
The drive will play any DVD just fine but will not even recognize any CD.
I am using Windows XP, but I have the same problem when I boot to DOS. It will read the files on a DVD but will tell me there is no media when I put in a CD.
I have reset the BIOS, as well as uninstalled and reinstalled the drive through device manager.
Anybody have other suggestions.
