    After Microsoft update, cannot read DVD drive


    After my computer updated, I can no longer access DVDs.
    I checked for updates.

    I uninstalled the driver and let Windows reinstall it.

    I used the option to Update the driver.

    Restarting my computer after each change.


    What do I need to do to have my computer access my DVD once again?


    Thanks,
    Irma

    DVD Drive issues.

    The games used to run, now apparently the disks don't even read.

    Go to Device Manager and remove the DVD
    Scan for hardware changes and update driver as OS suggests

    Still not working?

    1) Clean the heads.
    2) Run a diagnostic program on the drive.

    Nothing else has changed about your system aside from the OS?

    Revert to XP Home, assuming you don't find the source of the problem in steps above.
