Help - Drives not detected

Im not sure how long this has been happeing but i just noticed it today, both my DVD and CD drives are not working. When I try to reinstall drivers, i get a “no drive detected” message.

I have done some searching and tried what i have found, like deleting the IDE path and restarting but nothing is working. Im assuming its not a hardware issue since both stopped working at the same time.

I recently uninstalled Nero, and was getting arond to putting it back on. Thats when i noticed my drives arent recognized. Hence, cant load nero.

What info do you need?

Drives are:

Sony DRU 720a
Lite ON 48246S

Thanks in advance

Hello ericox and welcome to cdfreaks,

maybe this will match and solve your problem?!

CD-ROM access is missing and messages cite error Code 31, Code 32, Code 19, Code 39, or Code 41

Take care

Thank you, that seems to match my problem. Ill give it a shot when i get home.


Yep! that was the problem.

Thanks again
