Mitsumi cd-rom controller with double speed drive

Windows 98SE

Under Device manager the

mitsumi cd-rom controller with double speed drive

shows with a yellow exclamation mark.

The CD Drive doesn't seem to want to work. I can't see to find a "Driver" (?) for this controller to see if the drive is dead or just needs a new driver.

Can any one help?

(I thought CDROMs didn't have drivers!?)

Yes they do but they are normally quite happy with the windows generic ones

here is a link for some mitsumi here

Windows default drivers are usually OK. Have you tried removing in Device Manager and rebooting?

Deleted entry (i wasn't sure what this "driver" did so thats why i asked first!! CDROM immediately burst into life but makes sounds like it having problems reading CD.. Even after reboot...

Clunk, clunk, spin, clunk, spin, etc etc

I'll try a spare CD ROM drive.

Have you tried a CD cleaning disk?

VoG is will try one but unless that solves it i'll write it off as dead (it an old 8x drive)

Cheers all
