Re: My CD/DVD Drive doesn't work?
Most likely the drive has failed. They do fail, however usually its uncommon. Be sure to check the jumper settings on the back of the drive. If you have a single disc drive, set the jumper to "CS" and use the last connector on the IDE Ribon cable. If that still doesnt allow the drive to function, try to get ahold of another IDE cable and try that. AND IF after those to things fail to fix the problem, the conclusion is either a bad IDE controller on the motherboard OR the drive itself has a firmware or hardware issue deeming it a failed drive.
SO if all that goes down the crapper. Just go to the manufacturer's website of the printer and get the drivers that way. I recommend that anyway because usually they update drivers, and if you're here you obviously have internet. If you could give me the make and model of the printer i can get the drivers for you.
