I found recently that when I insert a dvd into my dvd drive, the autostart doesn't pop up, and if I try to open the disk using windows explorer I find that explorer either freezes and refuses to respond or that the dvd drive is shown as empty. However when I open Nero, the dvd drive is able to read the files already on the disk as well as burn new files. Help is greatly appreciated.

When you run it, almost the last option is to restore the original setting, did you use that

Download and install Everest Home Edition

Run the programme, click + next to computer then summary

Look on right for storage / optical drives

Look at the manufacturer’s site for the suitable firmware for your drive and Operating System


If you are unable to find them, please post the make and model here before you download anything

Please set a system restore point before you install anything
