Missing DVD-ROM RRS feed

  • Question

  • My computer running vista ultimate, after weeks of problem free use. failed to reconise my dvd writer (my only cd-rom drive). It was there earlier?! This has happened after installing the recommended updates for vista earlier that day. I have since tried using a dvd writer from an older computer, and once again my computer failed to reconise the drive. When trying to uptdate my dvd writers drivers manually through the device manager, it came up with the message 'Windows has determined the driver software is up to date'. this happend with both dvd wrtiters? Is there anything else i can try or need to do, or is this a falt with vista?

  • Did you recently install any CD-DVD Burning applications? You can start with uninstalling them (+ reboot) one by one to see if it comes back.
