DVD/CD Device



I have a Gateway MT6831 laptop, my DVD/CD drive wont work and hasen’t much since I bought this thing. It is a AD7530A ATA Device, I’ve tried searching for a solution, etc it still says cannot strt eror code 10, can anybody help?
Gateway only said to reload the operating system, it was a real pain but I did it, that lasted about a week. I’m running Vistas (laptop came that way) have not installed much software (well how can I since the drive dosen’t work)???


You might want to delete the upper and lower filters. Click this link: http://support.microsoft.com/gp/cd_dvd_drive_problems
and follow the instructions from Microsoft on that page.

Do you have iTunes installed by any chance. It has been known to cause problems in Windows regarding cd/dvd drives and sometimes produces this error code.
