All DVDs and CDs have stopped functioning after installing some Pinnacle software.
They report - Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)
I have tried different internal drives in the same slot and different external drives through the USB. All give the same error.
If I reboot in Linux it is fine. If I run diagnostics when booting up, they run fine.
