CD Drives are not working

Discussion in 'Microsoft Certification' started by =?Utf-8?B?YWxrNTQ1?=, Jul 29, 2006.

  1. My CD RW Drive is not reading or writing. I have checked device manager and
    it states that ut is working properly. I checked properties and there is no
    letter assoiciated with the drive. It used to be E drive. Somehow it
    disappeared. Can anyone help me. Thanks, Andy

  2. Andy - I've had this happen myself. Try this - Power off your cpu, open
    the case. Gently pull off the cd's cable, then put it back on. Heat in
    the case will sometimes cause these to pull away.

    Then reboot. You may have to reboot twice. But the drive should be
    recognized again.
