ARTEC WRR-52Z (DVD/CD-ROM DRIVE)
my cd/writer will not function properly at all.
if i try to write a disc i am told there is no disk in the drive - please insert a disk.
when i try to play a disc of any type the device will not read it. the light comes on briefly and goes off again repeatedly and I can hear the disc trying to spin and then stopping and then trying again, repeatedly.
i have not got a clue what to do.
i have checked device manager and the device is working properly etc and until recently the cd drive had been working fine with all discs both for writing and for reading.
i have uninstalled and reinstalled it using device manager and i have tried to find as much info as possible including reading posts on this forum.
What is firmware and am i likely to need it and will it solve my problem??
Is it likely that i will need a new device altogether or just that it needs cleaning somehow inside?
