Another CD-RW Problem

Hi,

I just installed WinXP and now my LiteOn CD-RW drive doesn't work properly.
It's my only cd-rom device and now when I put a cd in the drive it does not
read it. Then after a few seconds the cd drive opens again.

I checked on the Microsoft website and XP does support the device, and I
have the latest drivers installed.

Any ideas?

Thanks :)

What software did you install? Nero or clone cd? retrace your steps. When did it stop working?

What I did was install WinXP, then I placed a CD in the drive to install a program but it did not read the CD. So I tried a few others...and the same thing.

I would install nero, if I could ;) so I don't have nero or any other burn software installed...just the o/s

Thanks :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
