I am using Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600 Service pack 2 Build 2600 on a Prestigio laptop with CD RW/DVD Slimcombo LSC 24082k dirve. Using nero V6.3 I burned a few discs and after that the drive would not read any CDs (data or music) but it did play DVDs for a few times. Now it will not read any discs. It searches the disc for about 5 secs and then ejects the disc.
I uninstalled Nero, did restores, deleted lower filters (there was no upper filter) as recommended in one answer,
uninstalled and re-installed the driver and uninstalled Service pack 2. No luck!
Does anyone have any more suggestions? It appears to be a very difficult problem to solve.
