DVD-RW Problem


Recommended Posts


Anybody come across this before.

DELL Dimension E520 XPHome SP3, SATA DVD-RW

Computer is clean, no Virus's, or spyware.

DVD-RW drive not showing in My computer, DVD-RW drive showing confict in Device manager, tried usual Uninstall/re-install. no joy

Replaced the Hardware with new, same problem. Even tried External USB DVD-RW, same problem.

Tried new SATA cable. Tried 4 SATA ports on board. Same problem.

The only way i can get the Drive to show & work is to install another HDD,& install new O/S.

But as we all no that does not tell me the reason it happened in the first place.

Come on, the rest of you detectives, HELP!!!

Thanks in anticipation.
