After a smooth install of windows 7, the following problem has occurred. I have a Optiarc dvd rw ad-7233s drive and after the install of windows 7 finished, I have been unable to open the cd drive by normal methods…
(Note that I did a full clean install and not the normal “upgrade” option when installing windows 7.)
By normal I mean hitting the eject button on the tower and on my keyboard. The only way to open it has been to go into “computer” and right click on the cd/dvd drive icon and click eject.
I am using windows 7 home premium on a gateway DX4300-03 desktop.
I have tried uninstalling the device and letting it reinstall, rebooting several times and neither is working and I have been unsuccessful in finding anything on the internet about this particular problem.
Any advice you might have would be much appreciated.
