Anyone got any suggestions to fix a HL-DT-ST CA30N?
For some reason i can burn every now and then but cannot read any CD's, DVD's or Blu-Rays.
I am only posting as i really do not wan't to fork out for another drive as i am looking at replacing the machine.
It all started when i upgrade to Windows 10....
Yes i have done a format and reinstall.
Yes i am comfortable dismantling my laptop - I work in IT as a Computer Technician (well that's my title more a system engineer company only want's to pay at tech level to keep costs down).
i am willing to do firmware updates, registry mods, etc.
So a bit more info.
Yes I have checked and their is no filters. in Actual fact silly me most likely did more harm then good to the registry for cd drives.
The Drive in question only detects as a cd-rom drive in device manager. So if anyone could help me in getting this sorted or even reading Discs until such time i can afford to replace the laptop. (limited space cannot have desktop)
