Reformatted Windows, DVD Drive Won't Work


Recommended Posts

I recently reformatted Windows but now my DVD drive isn't popping up in my control panel. In Device Manager it just has a yellow icon on it. When I put in a DVD with a movie or an installation disc nothing happens, it doesn't even spin up.

The drive was working fine before I reformatted it. It is detected in the BIOS and during startup POST.

The drive is a Samsung BA59-02702A TS-U633F

Do you mean you reformatted the hard disk and reinstalled windows. If so it looks like you have lost the drivers and will have to re-install them.

What to doRemove all devices with exclamation mark and any "Other devices" from Device Manager by highlighting them and pressing the delete key on the keyboard. Once they've all been removed reboot the computer and allow Windows to re-detect the devices.

If after rebooting the computer the Device Manager remains the same Windows is not installing the devices because it lacks the proper driver support. You'll need to download the latest drivers for that device.

The above is an extract from windows. The relevant pages are 1

      I've always been an Intel Bigot but now days, does it really matter? It seems like most of the software out there works just fine on both and when you look at the prices. I see several hundred ($$$) reasons to go AMD.
      Thoughts? What does the Crowd Wisdom say about this one?

      Yo all, here's the deal - I've got a ATi Radeon HD 4850, quite good, but it's kind of giving me a headache when it comes to running newer games - 15-20 frames on GTA IV with high settings doesn't sound good to me...
      So the deal is - do I crossfire my current 4850 with another one or do I just buy a new GPU, like a 6950 or a 6970? It's a tough decision to make - just to note - it's not really about the money here, it's just that I'm not 100% sure if the 6000 series is right for me.
      P.S.: Yes, I absolutely MUST get 2GB of GPU memory if I will be going for a new one.(this question is also in the forum: http://www.groovypost.com/forum/hardware-software/crossfire-vs-new-card-t97008.html)

      recharge problem is the big problem to users as me, recently, I want to replace a new keyboard for old ones, although it's not a newest model, but it fit my choice, LG MK520. for the host page, the page said it's a rechargeable keyboard, and there are sentence in the line said like, it can be changer by putting the keyboard into charger? that why I post and look for someone response. I didn't want to register the LG a/c for just a simple Q, I guess it may said "put......" means the battery but not the keyboard. but the link did said " keyboard into charger"
      is it recharging by putting keyboard into charger?

      It's that time.... I need to upgrade the system at home a bit. Does anyone have a GREAT monitor they just bought or have you recently done some research you can share with me? Also, if you have any links to some good deals, please share!
      My old setup before I gave it to someone in the family was 2 DELL Ultrasharp 24 inch monitors however I'm hearing Samsung has some pretty nice gear out there now.
      Thanks!

      Is it possible to connect two computers to one external USB hard drive? If so, how? And, would there be a need for a special adapter?
