NO DRIVERS FOR DVD/CD AFTER VISTA UPGRADE RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All, I just upgraded Windows Vista Basic to Vista Premium

    Buying the upgrade online from Windows and using the

    upgrade disk that came with the computer, a Emachine

    I just bought a few months ago. The upgrade I thought went

    ok, which doesnt mean much seeing that I am in no way a computer

    geek...wish I was right now...But when I tried using my DVD/CD

    drive I found out that it doesnt read any disks...Checked device

    manager and getting the yellow caution sign with a ! in the

    middle....guess that means a bad thing happened during upgrade because it worked ok before.

    checked a little more and see that there is a problem with the

    drivers...tried to download newest drivers but telling me I have

    the newest drivers already installed.....Well excuse me...Because

    I thought you just told me I didnt have ANY drivers installed?!

    Can anyone hold me by my hand and talk me through how to

    fix this? Thanks ahead of time for any and all help!!!

  • Most likely you have a cd/dvd burning filter that has a conflict with another application. Did you just install a cd-dvd burning application or iTunes? If so try uninstalling them one by one, reboot and see if the ODDs work after that.

    when I uninstalled them like you suggested the drivers loaded properly. Thanks so much!
