My Dell Inspiron 6400 (Windows XP) is driving me mad with a CD/DVD-ROM problem. I've got a SONY DVD+-RW D-WQ58A which only reads DVDs, not CDs and not CD-ROMs!!!! Ahhhh (frustration)!!!
I've tried to download a driver update on the Dell site but when I open it I get an error: Target NEC ND-6650A is not found correctly.
I've been searching forums with people with the same problem, and I followed some advice to delete the upper and lower filters in the registry. Still not working.
I also saw on a forum that the Sony disc drive doesn't require any drivers, and that it must be a broken CD laser, but this seems odd becuase it reads DVDs.
I love the GeeksToGo online community and hope that someone will be able to help.
