Dell Intel P4 2800, 512mb ram, windows xp, 80gig HD
Samaung Cd-Rom, and Teac DVD+ RW DV-W58E
OK. Firstly the hard disk is now called F, I think it used to be C…??
And the DVD RW comes up as removeable disk C.
When I put in a CD or DVD nothing happens. If I click on Removeable Disk it says “please insert a disk”.
If I right click and examine properties I get:
Used space=0 Free space =0
Manufacturer: (Standard CD-Rom drives)
Location: Location 1(1)
This device is disabled (22) (When I try to enable it, it says that it cannot be enabled)
When I looked in Device manager the Teac DVD has a red “x” over it!
Finally I went to PCPitstop and ran a test on the system and came up with the following:
Teac DVD+RW code 22 (which just means it was disabled) I clicled on the link to Microsoft explanations, and on the “solution”; this was simply to enable it, but of course it cant be enabled!
Also I found (could be related….??):
Unknown Ethernet Controller code 28 (=drivers not installed)
Unknown Multimedia Audio Controller code 28 (=drivers not installed)
Sorry for all this jumble, but that’s as much as I can find out. Unfortunately I cant find the Blue Dell installation disks either! Im just guessing at either (a) drivers not installed or (b) faulty DVD RW drive or © loose connection….???
