[qanda]This thread is about the Optiarc AD-5540A. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 with a Optiarc DVD+-RW AD-5560A . The drive worked until yesterday. Vista will not recognize the drive. When I check the Device Manager it returns a "this device cannot start (Code 10).
Thanks in advance.
Try physically removing and reinserting the drive (with the PC off of course). Or try removing the device from Device Manager and rebooting. Aside from that, the drive has likely failed and needs to be replaced.
