CD/CDRW/DVD not reading media

  AFreestone 21:48 18 Jul 2005

My Acer lapton has a CDRW/DVD fitted. It has stopped reading any type of media within win XP prof. The device manager shows it as working and so does the bios boot. In fact it boots into Win XP CD through the BIOS.

In explorer it's shown as DVD/CD-RW drive (D:) but when any CD DVD is inserted it spins away then the title in explorer changes to CD Drive (D:). Nothing is read, data or music.

I've tried all the usual stuff in device manager ie removing and rebooting to no avail. I have iTunes and WMP10 loaded. All software has been removed and reloaded.

Any ideas gratefully received.
