A strange thing has begun happening and I don’t know what to do.
My pc’s RAM capable drive will no longer recognize the RAM discs I own. It will play any commercial discs, as well as burned discs it’s made as well as those made by my set top dvd recorders. But when I put in a RAM disc, it never loads or shows up under the drive icon in My Computer.
Burning dvds works still. I even pulled out several older RAMs that I haven’t used heavily, thinking that maybe the ones that were regularly used may have accumulated defects that I can’t see-despite working just fine in the set top recorders. Those aren’t working either.
If the drive were failing, shouldn’t it display problems with all discs, not just RAM?
