I made the biggest mistake on my computer that I have ever done.....
I installed Roxio Easy CD Creator v4.02c on WINDOWS XP !!!!!!!
Just calm down.
phew. those were some pretty mixed emotions!
Ok. I installed easy cd creator & my cd drive crashed.
It turns out that easy cd creator had deleted my driver & replaced it with it's own older version!!!!
BUT IT STILL WORKED .
for a while anyway...
for about a year whenever I started up my computer it said there were some cd drivers that were making windows unstable & it had shut those drivers down.
However all thogh performance on my cd drive was right down it still worked good enough for me.
But a few weeks ago (about a year after installing easy cd creator) I tried burning adisc.....
The computer tried & failed. I tried again this time it said there was an error. I tried again: this time it said insert a blank disk. Which was odd as there was already a blank disc in the drive.
I went to my computer, ejected & reinserted the disk & waited. It said the cd drive was empty.
I put in a cd rom. It still said the drive was empty.
That was when I new this time something was seriously WRONG
Hey thats about it. Let me know if you have any Ideas on how I can fix this problem,
Microsoft Windows XP
