Alright so here is the deal. Today i got home from work and was going to burn a cd in Windows Xp Pro. I put the cd in the drive, went into nero, did what i had to do then i clicked burn and it asked me where i wanted to save the file. I thought this was odd since it never asked me to do this before. So i further researched, went into my computer. Hey no cd drives. Im like ok well i will go check out the device manager. Well there you go there is a problem with my drives. So i reinstall the drivers, go to windows update and nothing works. I then go into event viewer and find an error of
The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
Event id: 7026 Source: service control manager
So i go to www.eventid.net
and check out what the deal is and it tells me to go into bios and turn on my caps lock, num lock, and scroll lock, then reset my bios and then start up windows. well first of all how would this fix anything, caps lock being turned on ooook. well this didnt work either.
Then I remember a few days back i just recently installed linux on an extra 40 gig partition i had that was not being used. so i went into linux and hey my drives work just fine.
So here is my question. Why do my cdrom drives work in linux and not in windows.
I put this in the linux forum but they say its not fault of linux so i bring my problem here.
my post in the linux sectin if you want to read what they had to say
