I have tried all i know and i am totally stumped. I have a packard bell easynote K5285 laptop that had problems with the dvd drive, only reading discs sometimes and then the drive not seen by the os at all. So i purchasd a new dvd drive, optiarc ad-7543a. Fits lovely but when windows boots up it finds new hardware but comes up with the name of x cpevDrVw’WDmw547 for the dvd drive, the name will change slightly on every boot. Suspecting a dodgy drive i put the new drive into my daughters laptop running same os and it installed with no problem and when seen by os it installed as an optiarc drive. I have downloaded all patches from packard bell website and updated the bios, i have even re installed windows but still the same problem, anybody with any solutions it would be much appreciated.
