The kids have struck again (I think they ejected during a read). The dvd is listed in windows explorer & in device mgr. but won't read. I have tried the following:- Restart; Shut down / turn on; Go to device mgr & uninstall the drive, & restart; Delete the device & use Add new hardware; Safe Mode & system restore; The only option left is to disconnect completely & try again unless I have missed something. Anyone any ideas?
