Part A of the 2 part question? What does it say in properties when I right click.It list my
HL-DT-ST-DVDRRW GSA -H3OL ATA DEVICE
Device Type: DVD/CD-ROM drives
Manufacturer: (Standard- CD Rom Drives)
Location: Location 0 (channel1,Target 0, Lun 0)
This device is working properly
Of course there are four other windows and if you want them I will put all the information here.
I have been reading where people have went out and bought New drives and still having the same problem. So I believe it is a software issue.
When I look through the details list I get a lot of questions in my head that seem conflicting.
Example-Under the details window Device description-Value sub window It list CD-ROM Drive
When I update the driver
or uninstall and then reinstall it comes back as
Windows has determined the driver software for your device is up to date.
and list it as CD-Rom Drive
