Have you contacted Dell to see if this is a known issue? Have you checked to see if there is a firmware update for your drive?

no i have not contacted them mate.I went to download the drivers for my cd drive and it said server is busy try again later.Going to e-mail them just now mate.They are fly mate there is no e-mail for them.You put in your service tag and ask to contact them by e-mail and it doesn't give you one just a phone number.Do you think the problem is adding that windows live network mate?.

No. Cause as i already said in that thread. I am on 5 or more different networks and i have not had a single issue. That is not the problem.

90% sure this is upper/lower filters

Your CD drive or DVD drive is missing or is not recognized by Windows or other programs

PS. let me know if this worked for you. I'm pretty sure it will, but confirmation is always nice
