there are no error message in the device manager. system & device stats say everything is in working order. i even did a full destructive restore on this thing, then after that,
i deleted the dvdw driver from my pc and restarted my system, & still nothing to indicate that there is a problem with it.
even after i went into the registry editor and removed the upper filters, shut my system down and restarted it once again, and still nothing. i have reason to belive that my drive is still in working order, becasue it opens and closes. when ever i put a dvd to play back in to the drive it says "no disk in drive e" the same thing when i try to play a cd or even burn one. i do know that my dvdw drive is a
TSSTcorp CD/DVDW TS-H552B
i even tried to update the firmware for this drive, the download and installation was a sucess, but it did not change anything, i do know that this is a e-machine model W3050 And Basically It's A cheap Gateway Computer, and it worked fine, but now all i know is i'll never purchase another emachine brand ever again.
however, the curiosity in me still wants to know why the drive is no longer work
