View Full Version : DVD Drive not working

16-01-2009, 11:35 AM
This has me stumped, the DVD drive shows up in BIOs and in the hardware manager, although it shows an error there (error says it has successfully loaded the drivers for the device, but cannot find the hardware).
If I uninstall the driver and reboot, the Op sys sees the DVD drive and loads the drivers, with the above error.
Have tried a new cable and a different drive.
The only thing I havn't done is reinstall the OP SYS, mainly due to the time involved in doing so

What version of Windows is it?

Is anything else on the same IDE connection as this DVD?

If there is, did you jumper it properly?

Did you install this recently??

WHAT cd writing programs are installed?

Is this the same error (http://forums.pcworld.co.nz/archive/index.php/t-24608.html) in the 1st post, error code 41?
