DVD Drives no longer working!!!!
Okay guys, heres the problem Im having. My DVD burner worked fine until recently. Now all of a sudden it isnt recognizing any type of disk, be it blank, DVD movies, music cds, or even game cds. What it is doing is making whatever program I use to access the drive (even windows explorer) freeze up and the drive makes a funny sound when it tries to read the disk. I doubt that its the disks because like I said it does that for all types. I have 2 drives, one a a dvd/cd burner and the other a cd burner, both fairly new with the latest firmware/drivers installed. Also, Ive noticed that now windows is referring to both drives as CD drives, not DVD/RW like it should. The problem is happening on both and Ive tried reconnecting them, the cables are not lose, and I switched around the master/slave drives with no avail. Device Manager also says that everything is fine with them. -_-
I think its possibly a spyware problem but norton, system mechanic, ad aware, and spybot search and destroy all say that my systems clean. Ive tried everything I can think of except for the final solution (but I really would not rather do that). Any suggestions? Ive poured through tons of forums, and it seems like quite a few people have this problem, but no one ever says how it was resolved, or even if it was.
Thanks a ton!!!!
