I am currently having problems with the CD Drives in my PC, They stopped working about 3-4 Days ago, I tried to burn some CD’s but my CD drive would not read any of them. I tried DVD’s and Blank CD’s but still the same result.
So I tried looking around on the web and saw that other people had these problems, I tried to use the steps they had provided people, Like going to the Device Manager and Uninstalling the Drives and then re-booting the PC. It failed it did not fix anything, The wierd thing is that when I go to My Computer and I click on the Properties of the Drive it shows that it is Unknown.
HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8483B and a hp dvd writer dvd630 are the models of my CD Drives.
As you can see in the Red box it reads Unknown, It used to say FAT.
At this point I really do not know what to do…
I tried switching the Wires up and Trying a Different CD Drive and still the same result…
Any Help is greatly Appreciated.
What did you install prior if anything to this problem showing up? Also how old is your computer and burner and firmware? What kinda media are you using? What software are you using to burn?
