Went to use my cd burner for the first time in a while and a pop up on the adaptec cd creator said "There are no supported cd-recorders available". Never have seen that in the 7 years I have had this computer.
For kicks I put in a burned picture cd into the cd-rom drive......nothing happens.....the light blinks a few times when I close it but then thats it.....nothing. Tried the same thing with a bought movie disk...nothing. I go to my computer and try to look at the status of the drive and it's not listed. it's as if my computer is saying I don't have either of these drives.
Can't use system restore because the last restore point available is over 2 years ago and it won't let me set a restore point for today in case I want to reverse it.
Can't use my restore disks since the cd-rom drive doesn't appear to be working...........
I'm at a loss as to what I can do next to try and find out what happened to my burner and cd-rom drives and if I can fix them.
