View Full Version : Cann;t "read" DVD Drive... (Help Please...)

Hello, I am new here. (Please don't hold that against me..)

I've just installed Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120% And afterwards, somehow, I am unable to read my DVD drive. I put a disc in, and... nothing happens.

I have, basically: Athlon 3.2 CPU
1 Gig RAM
DVD-R/RW (D: )
CD-R/RW (E: )

Now, strangely, I can still access E: drive (CD-R/RW) with no problems. I've already popped some music CDs and data CDs with no probme. It's D Drive that is not accessing anything. :confused:

I've tried going back to a previous Restore Point. And even checked the Registry for anything adnormal. Device Manager tells me nothing new or abnormal as well. Nothing works. I even physically unpluged the drive and rebooted. Shut down, and re-connected the drive. Again, nothing. I believe that I've
exhausted all other options.

I sincerely hope someone here can help me overcome this problem.

Thank you for your time.

Search for autofix.exe from MS and verify your AIN (Auto Insert Notification) is working properly.

Thank you. It's a start and I feel it's a start in the right direction. I do appreciate the help. Again, thank you. :)

Tried autofix and got this in the log:


Test [The Shell Hardware Detection service is running.] - Instance [N/A]:
Result [AutoStart Setting]: OK

I see quite a few "Absents" from this. Should I just delete all the drivers and re-install everything from scratch? Or would the inital problems within the system still remain?

Have unistalled everything. The cd player spins up but indicates 0 byte on disk. If I insert the drive after boot up everything works as normal.
