View Full Version : My CD & DVD burners are dead!

17.11.2009, 03:10
I tried out Daemon Tools and I must of done something terribly wrong, immediately after I tried to create a virtual drive both of my burners stopped working, the DVD burner stopped working completely, the drawer won't even open, the CD burner will accept disks, the read light flashes, but no matter what disk I put in, no files are read. The CD Rom still works perfectly, and all three worked perfectly before I installed and tried out the software.
To fix the problem, after trying everything I could think of, cleaning the burners, using the trouble shooting wizard, even installing new Drivers, trying a system restore, the device manager still insisted that both units were working properly! was to replace both of the burners.
Dose anyone have any idea what I might of done to create such damage?
Running Windows XP SP3
Anyway, that's my story,
Thank you,
