I was trying to load a driver on my computer (Lexmark network printer), but I cannot load the CD ROM in my CD R/W drive or DVD drive.
DVD drive keeps opening and closing the tray when I put the CD in, and after 3 times, opens the tray and stays open.
When I put it in the CD R/W drive , the drive LED starts blinking and then turns off. If I check in the Explorere the drive letter still just shows the drive letter instead of the title of the CD in the tray. If I click on the drive letter, the drive LED starts blinking again but nothing happens.
What I have tried:...
I loaded the same Lexmark CD on another machine and it started the install program automatically.
I loaded a diferent program CD on my computer and that strated the install program automatically from both the CD drive and the DVD drive.
So the drives seem ok and CD seems ok, but for some reason the LEX CD is not working in the drives on my computer.
I got my M/B and CPU upgraded a couple of months ago, so I had to load the Windows XP again. I used the same drives to load the Windows XP Prof edition on the machine (and the drives worked fine). I also had to reformat the HD for reloading the windows, so everything was a clean start.
Just to be on the safe side, I also uninstalled both the drives and had widnows find the drives again, just to make sure that they had the right drivers.
Stil the same results.
I am not able to use my network printer since I cannot load the drivers.
Can someone help???
