Lost My Burner

Post by Alby on Wed Dec 16, 2015 12:36 pm

One of my DVD burners isn't showing up ...
It's on my Vista PC. Don't know why... but it disappeared off the screen. It lights up when I put a disc in it.. but that's all.
It's the better one too.

Any ideas ?

Hi Smile
See here:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/open-device-manager#1TC=windows-7
Using "Device Manager" remove device then reboot.
This should then discover device without any problems.

They do go bad though... I have had some just stop working on me. I've got several on shelves in my basement, still brand new in boxes (LG, LITE-ON, BenQ, NEC), and I rarely burn anything. Still got SCSI optical drives (Plextor!!! There's a name that has fizzled out)... Wish I would have not spent that money!!! Optical drives are just not as relevant today as they once were.
