I recently tried to burn a cd on my cd rw and it wouldn’t recognize the cd. I put a regular cd in and it didn’t work either. I checked the driver and it says it’s working properly. I tried uninstalling the driver and reinstalling it but nothing. The cd rw opens and close with no problem when you put a cd in it shows the reading/thinking icon but nothing you go to my computer and it shows it as cd-rw (d) as if nothings there.
Now the only thing I can say as help is that it was open and got hit and I had to open the computer to take it out and get the actual tray back on track but there was nothing else done and once I did that I turned it back on and everything was ok until I went to use it. I'm only guess that because I un-hooked it I some how did something but its still kind of weird to me. Because it flashes when I uninstall it and re install it, it shows up it just wont read anything, I’m hoping it’s a driver issue, but then again I’m having trouble with find any anyway so I don’t know what to do.
Oh last thing and for some reason it won’t do a system restore either?
The CD RW is a TEAC CD W524E
On windows xp pro service Pack 3 2002
Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 1.9GHz
1.89GHz, 512 MB of RAM
