Hi,
After I finally got my computer to recognize my new CD burner (I stupidly forgot to set the jumper setting as a slave drive, since I already had a primary on that cable) I went to burn my first CD and found that the drive was not recognizing my CD-R's. I had a few different brands, so I tried those, and it still didn't work ( I tried a TDK, a Memorex, and a Verbatim) I decided to see if it read anything at all, and found that even with CD-roms and music CD's it wasn't reading them. The drive won't read anything at all! Is this a problem with the drive, or is it something I can fix without having to go through the trouble of sending it back, or must I begin the incredibly slow process of sending it back?:(
Thanks,
Cory
BTW, the drive is a Sony 32/10/40 CD-Rw if you needed to know that for some reason.

Try uninstalling it from device manager then reboot your system.

Do you have another CD-ROM drive in the computer? if so does it read CD'S? Does the CD-RW drive appear in Device Manager?

You can also try the CD-RW by itself on the IDE cable - unhook the other drive and give it a try.
