I have a cd drive on one of my computers, and using that drive it shows in My Computer and will play recorded music cd's without any problems.
When I make any attempt to download a software programme off a disc in the same drive, it just informs me 'to insert disc'. (As though there is no disc there, when there actually is). Same problem with other download disc's and attempts.
Never had this problem previously, so is there a way around this.
Tried the 'fix' and went through the procedures, it reported that it could find no problems on either drives. It then offered further Microsoft support, but what was offered provided no further possible solutions.
The disc is a pre-produced manufactured software download item, which I have used previously with success.
Having played around a little, it would seem as though its possibly my fault. the cd drive was trying to 'search' the disc. Putting the disc in the DVD drive allowed me to open the disc. I went no further than that, so will play around with it again tomorrow possibly, and see if that resolves all the issues.
Thanks both, will now tick this post.
