DVD R/RW drive no longer reading discs after Vista upgrade
I just completed a Dell Express Vista Upgrade from Win XP SP2 Media Center
Edition to Windows Vista Home Premium. Since doing so, my DVD R/RW drive will
not read any discs I put in it. The drive will spin like crazy, and the light
will come on, but it will not read either CDs or DVDs. When I try to browse
the contents of the disc in "Computer", I'm prompted to insert a disc, and
the drive ejects.

The only thing I noticed was that the Roxio drivers were not being loaded at
startup. I uninstalled my Roxio software, but the problem didn't go away.

This is my current configuration:

Windows Vista Home Premium
Dell XPS 210, 300GB HDD, 2GB RAM, 1GB Video RAM, standard DVD R/RW drive.
Please let me know if you require any further information.

I have the exact same problem. I am going to try and switch to another
user profile, maybe that will help.
