Windows XP issues
I'm usually rather successful at clearing things up on my computer, but I'm at a loss with this. About a week ago, my CDRW and DVD quit working. Driver issues. Not a problem at first considering I could fix that. I went to device manager and received this prompt 'Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.' It's mmc.exe.
I lurked on several forums and the consensus seemed to be to fix my mmc problem with the Windows CD. Obviously, I can't do that. I've ran anti-virus and spy-bot, but have come up clean. I'd like to do this on my own and would appreciate any help.
I was thinking I could purchase an inexpensive CD-Rom drive to install and run the windows disk. I'm wondering if that would work, or is there an easier way?
