Problems accessing CDRW in XP
Posted on 2003-03-28
Hello. I am having problems with my CDRW (and any CDROM for that matter) in Win XP. This is a strange problem to me, so let me explain. First, it will not access the CD drive at all while in the XP environment. I can go to Start, Run, D: and no luck. No luck in My Computer either. The only way I can get it to read a disk is to put the disk in, and restart the computer. If I do that, everything is normal until I remove the disk. After I remove the disk, it will not read another until I repeat the restart process. I have tried to run the Windows update with no luck. I have also tried to download and install the chipset drivers for my motherboard (MSI 845 Ultra-C with P4 1.8). I have tried using CDROM drives that I know work properly with no luck. I am all out of ideas here, so I seek your help. Thanks in advance....
