Re: DVD drive stops working after uninstalling programs
I have a similar problem with my two DVD AOpen and LG, both DVD drives are
disappearing without apparent reasons. I use to just restart the computer
and then they reappeared but for some reasons now, they are not reappearing
anymore. In the Device Manager, they are showned with a yellow exclamation
point. When trying to update driver, I get the message that they already
use the most updated driver.
This seems to be a Vista problem. Can anyone come to my help?
