Hey, i have 2 cd drives in my pc and when i insert a disc nothing happens, it doesn't recognise anything on them, one of them is sony and not sure about the other 1. the sony 1 is a cd drive and the other is a dvd rw drive.

Any advice on getting these to work would be great!!

Cheers, Seanbwfc

If you open up 'My Computer' do they show there?

yeah they both show up, but when i open them nothing happens, the cd-rw says insert disc! lol i've gone into device manager and they show up on there to

Tried running one drive at a time? could be a power supply issue, not saying it is but have had that prob before.

It could be a power problem but, if not, I'd guess some Windows drivers have got corrupted. Try booting from a CD - if that works then it's almost certainly Windows. You could then try reinstalling Windows - that might solve the problem.

Delete the drivers (one at a time) and then search for drivers on windows

Try booting from a CD - if that works then it's almost certainly Windows.



Assuming booting from a CD works, before reinstalling Windows try removing the drives in the device manager - then restart Windows and see if they work after that.
