I have a friend who's DVD/CD-ROM and CD/RW will not read any type of Disk they put in. One is on an E: drive the other is on the D: drive they are using O/S XP Professional. I assumed it was a case of updating the Drivers but when putting in the make and model of each I did not seem to get anywhere with them!! They are both Sony the CD/RW is something like 225E?? if I can recall.. with the DVD I can't remember but I know that is also a Sony!! There was a mention of firmware which threw me completely!! Any suggestions!!
If the ribbon as come away from the m'board then I did not think you would still get the Hardware showing up i.e D: and E: drive showing both DVD-CD-ROM and the CDRW and in Device Manager they are showing up as working properly!!
