[qanda]This thread is about the Fujitsu DVD-ROM / CD-RW Combo Drive S series. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook S6010. The notebook boots up and runs the operating system. However I cannot get the DVD rom drive to work even though the operating systems detects it and the Bios also see it. It has Windows XP Installed. please can anyone help?
Hi and Welcome!
are there any problem indicators in Device Manager?
Additionally, you may try if you can boot your computer off a bootable CD or DVD. I like Linux live CDs for that purpose, but a Windows install disc should work also.
Please note you might have to adjust the boot priority in Bios setup to allow booting from your optical drive.
many thanks Michael I will try that:)
