One of my CD drives oftens flashes when I know there is no activity.It also seems not to want to eject any disc I may have in it at the time.The other CD/DVD drive and HD are both fine.Is the drive faulty (6 years old)or is it a software fault.
Doubt its software, it really doesn't need any...uninstall the drive in device manager reboot PC it will then be re-recognised and assigned generic drivers by your O/S which is all it needs...
Probably time for a new one (DVD-ROM or rewriter), which will handle both CDs and DVDs; cost is buttons these days.The only time software controls a drive is if you are using a burning program such as Nero or testing a drive's efficiency (Nero includes such a utility).However, it's worth trying a potential cure.Go to Device Manager, highlight your problem drive, right click, Uninstall it and then Reboot.Windows will Find New Hardware and reinstall the basic CDROM drivers.
Changed the drive unit and now cured.Thanks for advice
