I have a dell vostro 1510 laptop with windows vista.
It has an "Optiarc DVD+-RW AD-7640A ATA Device" installed which used to work find.
My vista has two user profiles on it.
Now when I insert a "normal" (factory burned) CD or DVD into the drive:
- When The first user profile is active: It waits a few seconds then eject the media automatically.
- When the second user profile is active: The icon in the windows explorer for that drive changes from "DVD ROM" to "CD ROM" and nothing else happens until I right click (E:) and choose explore. It then ejects the CD and pops a dialog with the caption
"Insert a Disk"which says
"Pleasa Insert a Disk. Please Insert a disk into drive E:".
If I insert a blank burning media:
- When The first user profile is active: It pops up the AutoPlay dialog asking if what software do I want to use to burn a DVD with.
- When the second user profile is active: It pops ud a dialog asking me to name the new DVD beig burned"
It feels to me as if the machine somehow thinks its in the middle of a burning process but I don't know how to stop it. (I could be wrong though).
I am Looking for ideas on how I can make it read CDs again.
