I got a virus which was completely messing up the system, with lots of different symptoms. I then tryed installing windows, which made it worse by not allowing me to put any type of cd into the drive.
I then took it to a PC Clinic, who wiped the hard drive (including the virus) but they could not work out why the cd was not working - they tried a few things - including replacing one of the drives. Since then, I have been using the drives fine to read CDs, but when I install any CDRW software, the drives just freeze the computer. As long as I don't have any writer software installed, I can use the read function of the drives.
This is obviously annoying as I cant use my CD-writer.
I found a website http://www.siliconguide.com/qa/forum...es/131-1.shtml
with people who have exactly the same drive, and similar problems. They all say that they need drivers.
I am beginning to think that the problem is something to do with corrupted drivers...But I'm not sure what to install or reinstall etc.
Thanks for your help tom
