My friend has an HP Pavilion ZD7058CL notebook. It’s got a CD-RW/DVD-ROM combo drive (an LG GCC-4241N).
I’ve no idea how she did it, but the CD disappeared from Windows Explorer (she’s running XP Home). Windows Device Manager reported “error 39”. Deleting the device, then running XP_CD-DVD-Fix got the drive back.
Now, however, it no longer automagically detects CDs or DVDs. The only way to get them mounted is to go to the drive’s properties page in Device Manager, click on the Volumes tab, and click the Populate button. (Autorun, although enabled in the registry, doesn’t work either.)
A gal from HP suggested I boot from a Windows XP CD and use the “repair” option.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to make the drive work properly?
