I've currently had this problem for a couple of weeks now, with no luck finding help, or whats wrong.

Anyways, the problem is that every time I play a DVD or a CD, the sound reverbarates. Anything else such as system sounds or Mp3 music, plays fine. As do video clips. But the disks don't. It's really, really annoying. I gather that it's obviously related to my drive, and I have no clue what to do. Their techs never got back to me anyway.

Can anyone help? Or at least point me in the right direction? PLEASE? ...can a drive be uninstalled and reinstalled like a program? That might help..I dunno. But please...help.

You can go to device manager, right click the CD ROM drive, click remove, confirm then reboot

Check for a firmware update for the CD ROM drive, but be careful to get the correct one

If I remove it, the firmware reinstalls it or something?

Windows will re-install the drive when it loads

The firmware is different / seperate

Windows will re-install it in the same way it did when you installed XP

It is unusual for a drive to need additional drivers
