I am new here and new to this. I don’t know flash from firmware, but what I do know is that my CdRom Drive is having some problems and I can’t seem to find answers anywhere… can anyone help?
Here’s what’s happening:
When I place any kind of CD into the drive, it starts to load and a few seconds later the coputer freezes and I have to manually shut it down and then re-start it. It does this every single time.
My copmuter is a Compaq and is running Windows XP (which I recently upgraded to). I have the Nero program installed, but I do not think it is this that is the problem. My Cd drive is a LITE-ON LTR-40125S SCSI. I’ve had it since I used to use Windows 98 and it never gave me any problems until recently. The only new things done to it, were dowloading firmware (not really sure about what that is) from the manufacturer’s site and, of course, the installation of Windows XP.
Because of this problem, I can’t even burn any CDs anymore! boo-hoo… can anyone, please, please, please, help?!?
Would be much appreciated! Thanks!
