DVD drive not working.
Okay so a couple weeks ago I built a computer, I have a NEC dual layer 3500A DVD drive. When I first built it I got it to run my Windows XP disk and I was able to rip a couple cd's and play Battlefield 1942.
But recently it hasn't been working, I have tried so many things to get it to work. When I would go to device manager it said everything was working okay but it still wasn't reconizing any disks I put in.
I want to be able to play games on this computer, it's pretty much the reason I built it.
I updated everything on Windows and once I downloaded SP2 my DVD drive wasn't even showing up on device manager or on My Computer. I tried unplugging the drive and plugging it back in but Windows still didn't reconize it. I went on NEC's website and it says I don't need any drivers for it since I'm running XP. Also I should note this was a OEM drive and did not come with any kind of CD.
I don't think my DVD drive is broken, I can still open and close the tray fine.
Thanks so much for the help.
