Windows 7: DVD player and sleep mode

DVD player and sleep mode

hello
To prevent my computer from going out of sleep mode by itself I have to unplug my ethernet cable, that's 1 problem but I don't really care.
The other problem is when I come out of sleep mode, my DVD player opens by itself, I close it, and it reopens
huh?
=(

Strange, I'm not sure why your DVD drive keeps opening though. Is it empty?


Hope this helps,

Shawn

yes it is empty, and the green light is flashing (the one that usually flashes if the drive is reading something)

Hi JP83,

Thats a really strange problem, have you checked with your pc manufacture or the manufacture of the dvd drive for a firmware update to it?

JP,

Do you have the latest firmware installed for you DVD drive?

You might also crack the case open to see if the power and data cables are securely and properly connected.

On the link you provided above, click it and then click the "Updates" tab. There you will find what looks to be a downloadable program that when ran will detect what firmware you have. Suggest running this to determine if you have the latest firmware version.

If you have something less than 1.58, download the firmware update version 1.58 and follow instructions on how to install.

it is not detecting it, I will check the bios and then open my case


edit : a complete shutdown followed by a startup solved the problem a reboot did not it could be my new motherboard too, since my DVD player is IDE, to be honest I have no clue

Open device manager, expand CD & DVD rom drives,

Double click on your DVD drive

go to the details tab

from the drop down, choose hardware id's

in there should be the firmware version. It may not be clear, but it should be there. If your unsure, post a pic of that window with the "hardware id's" being shown.

JP, I'm happy to hear that it seems like the problem has sorted itself out for you. I would still check to see if you have the lastest firmware installed for the DVD drive though.
