My Samsung CD R/RW no longer works, it does not show up in My Computer but device manager shows it with the yellow exclamation mark, The Device status from the property sheet says “this device cannot start. (Code 10)”
System is PII 233Mhz, 512RAM, Win2KPro SP4 (fully patched), 2 HD’s(Master & Slave) on primary IDE and CD(Master) on Secondary IDE.
This is what I have done so far.
-Uninstall device/drivers and reinstall
-Uninstall secondary IDE and reinstall
-Changed IDE Cable to the CD
-Unplugged Slave HD and set CD to Slave and plugged it in (Primary IDE)
-Installed another CD RW and tested both configurations (Primary & Secondary IDE)
The computer always finds the device and installs it but the result is always the same no cdrw in my computer and yellow exclamation mark in device manger with “this device cannot start. (Code 10)”
Both the CDRW’s work on my P4 XP Pro machine!!! and the Samsung did work before I upgraded to Win2000Pro from NT4.0.
Any Help would be much appreciated.
