Have a cd-rw (LG gce-8481b) & dvd-rom (LG gdr-8161b) on a gateway running
winXP mc. One day, they're not there. System says a problem occured trying
to start the devices....blah....blah....blah

Uninstalled devices....reinstalled...and same prob, cannot start
devices...problem occured.

The PC has a ton of spyware/adware....and a virus when I got a hold of
it....pretty much cleaned it out 99.9%, but same thing. I'm thinking either
some spyware/adware/hijacker or the virus itself corrupted the device
driver. Right now i'm stumped...any suggestions?
Thanks

try again...but the pc is not with me, so I wanted to get more suggestions

cables? thanks

Similar thing happened to me before, I re-installed the ATAPI drivers.
