Just so you will know, The optics are fine, I took the drive apart and cleaned the optics with alcohol and a qtip, but the drive still will not read. Further information
The software included is that crappy Roxio Creator. I have had problems with this ROXIO on two or three systems in a row.
On a previous online support session, a tech had me to remove a string command from the registry, And this was also with that Roxio software. Im sick of this crappy Roxio, someone in this area knows how to attack it.
Can someone please help me get my cdrom working again? If it worked to begin with, I would not have just lost 2000 family pictures that I can not get back.
