DVD No media error

So I recently flashed my HDD and reinstalled windows xp form a boot disc on my dell inspiron 640m. But now my dvd player will not read any media, I have installed the latest drivers. The model is TSSTcorp DVD±RW TS-L532B, under device manager it shows that the device is working properly. Here are some screen shots of primary and secondary IDE channels. PLEASE HELP.

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

Well, since you managed to boot from the drive to reinstall your OS, chances are the drive isn’t trashed.

Can you tell us what burning software you have installed, and also if you have any virtual drive/emulation software (such as Alcohol, Daemon Tools, MagicISO etc) installed?

I currently have PowerISO and Nero6 installed, neither of which recognize any media.

I do not believe the DVD drive worked before I installed those two pieces of software either.

Am I to assume the drive can read/write CDs?
