sometimes DVD drive is not reconized RRS feed

  • Question

  • i have vaio laptop with vista buisness. i have been having problem that the DVD drive is not reconized sometimes but not all the time. sometimes after i open the laptop there is no dvd under the computer icon and none in the device manager, then other time there is a DVD in the device manager with yellow triangle and no DVD in the computer. the DVD is MATSHITA. Is this a hardware problem that requires a new DVD or this is a registry problem
    Thanks alot for the help

  • Hi drjonit,

    I would say it is hardware issue. To be 100% sure, I would suggest run one of Ubuntu's CD Boot (beautifully scans all hardware) or BartPE to investigate it.

    But I suggest: hardware issue
