I have a problem with my laptop and would appreciate greatly any help you great guys can give me:
I have a Fujitsu-Siemens AMILO Pro V7010 and recently I noticed that my CD-ROM drive didnt work. I restarted my computer and still nothing was happening.
The computer detects the hardware because it runs the 'found new hardware' wizard, but when I go to install it, i cant because the drivers are on a CD- and I obviously cant work one.
I ran device manager and tried to install one of the drivers already in there, but no luck. I searched for thousands of drivers on the Internet and downloaded them, but they dont work, it comes up with 'Target drive could not be found'.
I can still open the drive, and insert CD's /DVDs but it doesnt do anything when I close the drive. I've tried eveything! Please help me sort out this mess!
The "Target drive not found" message could mean that it can't find the DVD drive you just installed, so either the cables have come loose or the BIOS probably doesn't support it. When the laptop boots up and detects the drives connected, see if the DCD drive comes up along with the hard drive. If it does, then it's connected properly and supported but if it doesn't it's either come loose or not supported. Also check if there are any jumper settings on the back as I'm not sure if laptop drives use jumpers or not.
