i hav a dell notebook my dvd rom was working properly and suddenly it stop working with cd,s i can still play the dvds but its not reading any cd. can some one help plz. i did everything which i can like reinstall dvd/cd driver, reinstall windows xp,update the firmware.......................help......................
Problem update. I have now discovered that windows can still play music cds through Real Player and write to disk using Incid. It seems only cd-roms like XP Home etc cannot be read.
Also on start up the warning "Ultra dema-5 capable but disabled" is shown. I have checked out IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. Primary channel set at DMA if available Transfer mode 5 and Secondary channel set at DMA if available in device 0 and Current Transfer Mode Ultra Mode 4 with Transfer Mode set at Multi Word Mode 2.
Can these differences cause the problem and if so anyone have ideas on how ro resolve them?
