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.[/QUOTE]
Be sure 'buttonmonitor is being loaded. In my Gateway (Vista) it is located here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Gateway Photo Frame\ButtonMonitor.exe
If this isn’t loaded, the buttons on the box don’t work.
It is actually for photoframe and it sucks that it needs to be loaded for the buttons to work.
