Problems started with a disappearing cd/dvd drive both in explorer and device mgr.
Checked properties which said had a driver already in memory so could not start.
Believe I now have that sorted. could not read dvd data drives. Tied -r +r +rw and -rw same result. ted
Tried windows backup said unable to continue disk not empty. Formatted disk and tried again same result. Tried Nero same result. Tried dragging files to disk written OK. read ok.
removed disk put in another brand new disk same problems as before. Put first disk back in Windows Explorer properties showed 4.2 free of 4.7, opened dvd no files shown. Went to cmd prompt no files shown. reformatted under dos. back to windows explorer properties still showed 4.2 free of 4.7. open disk no files shown. reformatted under windows. then closed my computer, Restarted and drive shows 4.2 free of 4.7 no files shown same in dos. removed dvd and re inserted still same result.
Anyone got any ideas please
