Which operating system do you use?
XP, Vista, windows 7?

remove the drive from device manager, then reboot for it to be reinstalled

Thanks for that after rebooting has done the trick.... however if i go to computer...the cd icon is there if i left click on that i get the message windows cannot access the specified device path or file.You may have not got the appropiate permission to access the item. Why is this ??
Many thanks
