Quite a while back, my CD-RW drive decided to stop reading CD's I would put into it. It's this type: HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8160B. For some oddball reason, I could still rip them into a file on my computer, and I could still burn CD's (unless it flakes out, which it's done recently too). It just doesn't want to read a music disc at all. Now it will only recognize and play and rip the very first music CD put into the CD-RW slot after having the driver uninstalled and reinstalled. When I switch music CD's it tells me I don't have a disc in the drive at all. It is recognized by the system, and on the device manager information it says that it's working properly. I've done the troubleshooter, but of course no help there at all. I had read another thread here http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/165204 and I tried uninstalling the driver for it and doing the hardware wizard for reinstall. And then I tried deleting the reg keys it suggested, and that didn't get it back in working order either. I'm out of ideas on how to fix this thing! Help!
