There's only the DVD/CD driver
to play with, nothing else. It's the only driver in device manager showing the exclamation point with yellow triangle. You're right in that it's a software issue, but what MB drivers
are you talking about that may affect the DVD driver?
If you go into Device Manager
, then select Devices by connection
on the View
menu, you can see to which controller device your drive is attached. It will also help to identify which device could be causing the failure, because you'll be able to see which device is connected to the same controller as your DVD Drive.
The screen shot I've attached to this post shows my Device Manager, which shows my DVD Writer connected to ATA Channel 1 on the PCI IDE Controller.
The PCI IDE Controller is part of the motherboard, and if it has a failure, for whatever reason, the the devices attached to it will also not work. Try updating the driver for the PCI IDE Controller to which your DVD Drive is attached. You'll need to go to your motherboard manufacturer's website to download these drivers.
