I have tried updating the firmware from the device manager, and it found nothing. I updated the firmware from the website and it still dont work. Its interesting... I put a CD-R or DVD-R into the drive and open the Windows Explorer. On the toolbar to the left I click CD-ROM. Instead of exploring the drive, it highlights My Computer and explored that instead. I dont have any viruses (Norton), so thats not the problem. I have tried burning CDs. Nero says it burns information, but it dousnt, and Windows Explorer cant even access it. I checked in Windows Media Player to even see if it sees a CD, and it douse not. Its like the drive isnt even connected. But it is able to read info (such as music in WMP)
I dont understand this. Its confusing!!!
