CDRW not reading discs but it's not a hardware problem.
Posted on 2007-03-19
All of a sudden, I've lost my cdrw drive!! My laptop has a Samsung CDRW SN 324S. One of the updates I installed recently must have caused a problem because the system isn't reading CDs. I see the drive on the system view but not the cd file contents. The Windows troubleshooter tells me the component is working properly and I've gone through all the steps in the troubleshooter, uninstalling, reinstalling, etc. Anyone had this problem? Any help appreciated.
