dvd drive shows 100% used space, no disk in drive
Posted on 2011-03-09
Running XPPro on a HP workstation,
When there is a disk in the drive, the data light blinks and disk spins. When I open Windows explorer, it opens the drive and it shows an empty folder regardless of whether a disk is in the drive or not. Usually, computers prompt "Please insert disk.." or something of that nature. If I right click the drive and select 'Properties', the drive shows 100% space used, regardless of whether there is a disk in the drive or not.
My next step would be to start in safe mode, uninstall the driver, restart, and then install a new driver.
Is there another solution, or have you seen this problem before?
