    when i insert a disc the drive can't read it but when i restart the computer the drive can see it. Sometimes it reads it but doesnt show the name on the drive. Any help would be nice. thx

    P.S I scanned with mcaffe version 9 and norton systemworks 2005 didnt fix the problem.

    when you restart windows, it'll load it's own driver
