    Hi, I have a Toshiba Satellite M45-S351 computer, and all the hardware is original (including CD drive), but I upgraded the OS from XP Home to XP Pro. When I did the upgrade (about a couple of months ago, when I cleared everything and run the system recovery disc), it said the DVD-Ram Driver was not compatible with XP Pro, and had to be uninstalled, which I did. Everything worked perfect for a couple months, but in the last week under the drives on My Computer it suddenly read "CD Drive" instead of "DVD-RAM Drive," and now it's back to "DVD-RAM Drive," but I'm having problems. Ever since then it hasn't worked quite right. CD Burning projects fail after a minute or so (with several different types of burning software), and when I put in a music CD, when I try to play it on Musicmatch (my preferred method of importing music from CDs), I click on the CD under devices, and it says "The item you requested could not be found. Please try your request again later." BUT, it recognizes the CD when I put it in, and it actually plays in the playlist! I don't understand what's going on. I can't burn CDs, and I can't import CDs.

    Here's what I've tried so far, to no success at solving the problem:
    System Restore to a time I know it worked fine (message came up saying D: Drive couldn't be restored)
    Uninstalling Driver and Rebooting, letting Windows reinstall driver
    Uninstalling Driver and manually reinstalling driver

    Any ideas? Or do I need to clarify some of my description? Any help would be greatly appreciated
