yesterday my cd drive and the external dvd-r drive just disappeared. Device Manager shows them with a little warning sign next to them. If I pull the drives and reinstall it tells me the drivers are corrupt or missing. After much searching for the samsung sn - 324b driver I have been unabvle to find a downloadable version that actually works for me. I have the disk for the USB LG GSA-E60L but cannot use it of course unless one of the two drives works.
I have tried uninstalling both, disabling and enabling both, cursing at them, etc.... My hammer is beginning to look tempting. I have the original dell recovery disk somewhere, I just moved and have no idea where now, is that my best course now?
