i have an Acer Windows Vista. the first couple of days I was using it the cd-drive was workin just peachy, but now it has suddenly stopped!
o was reading around and the stuff looked pretty complicated about how to fix it....im not exactly the brighest...er watsit? presicely!
rite so, when i insert the cd it flashes 2 or 3 times and u can hear the disc spinning around and it makes a sound as if its reading it but then it will jst stop flashin and go silent. the only things soming up in my computer are the C: and D: drives. its not the right one because my dad has the same computer and it comes up as F:
if i go into device manager, then click on disk drives, it says Hitachi HTS542512K9SA00
if i then click that, i says "This device is working properly." in the device status box......which it clearly isnt!!!
i read around and other places were saying stuff like, get a new cd-rom drive.....but i hav a laptop!
i also didnt want to just press buttons in case pictures and things got deleted.
any ideas? thanks
