Help! This is OS agnostic as it's a DVD RW issue so, sorry if it is
perceived as OT.
Does anybody have any idea why a DVD RW drive will read a DVD, any DVD
but it does not even register the fact that a CD has been inserted?
After some searching on many hardware tech sites/forums the opposite
seems to be common; where a CD is recognised but a DVD is not. Trust
me to be awkward :-)
It's a Philips drive (I think, it's not mine) in a Dell tower PC that
is a couple of years old.
The lens is clean and all leads are in place. I have stripped the
drive down as far as it will go and put it back together. It still
plays DVDs but not CDs...
I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
PLEASE DON'T drink and drive it's not clever, it's just stupid.
