For a reason I can't understand my DVD-RW drive on my laptop has decided that it doesn't want to read cd's, it still reads dvd's perfectly, and even blank cd-r's but if i insert a music disc it starts to spin up then nothing happens; the drive stays labelled as dvd drive and nothing appears in it, I can't explore it or anything.
I have clicked 'ask me everytime' in regards to autoplaying cd's, and I have tried updating to the latest drivers, and even uninstalling the device and letting windows install it again, the drive appears as healthy in device manager. I have even tried running a command prompt (following instructinos on HP's website), using startdisk the computer shows that the drive works and that it can see the contents of the cd, but as soon as I reboot into windows and try to read a cd, nothing happens.
The model number is HP DV6529em running windows vista home premium, which I have JUST re-installed to try and aid the problem.
Any help will get gratuitous rep.
