In my Packard Bell laptop i have a QSI DVDRW SDW-042. I have had many problems with burning on the drive but now the drive won't read any CDs or DVDs at all. There is no 'error reading' message. Simply when i click on the drive in my computer, it opens but displays nothing, regardless of the CD entered. I uninstalled the driver and reinstalled it. That failed to work, so i tried to update the driver but i have the latest one off the internet. Therefore, im stuck and badly need help asap as to any other options beyond either buying a new drive or reinstalling XP.
