I have windows vista home.
16x DVD(+/-)R/RW DL LightScribe drive
1gb ram
pentiumd 830.


My dvd cd rw drive is unresponsive. no programs can recognize that their is a cd drive. and i cannot open or close the drive.

when i go into My computer and right click on the drive i get a error message saying

DVD RW Drive (f:) is currently in use
save any open files on this disc, and then close the files or programs using the files before trying again.
if you choose continue the files will be closes which may cause data to be lost

cancel. try again, continue

when i try to click continue another error message comes up saying the same thing. with just a OK to click.

This started happening when i tried to make a backup on CD. i went to change CD's after the program prompted me to. and then this problem occured.

i have tried system recovery, Deleting and re installing my Drivers, disabling and rebooting my computer. and still nothing.

Welcome

is the CD still in your driver?
If it is, it may be your problem!
you should get it out first and then reboot!
(to open your drive: there is a very small hole in the front of your driver, press in it with a needle or something small and the drive will open!)
Afterwards reboot!

Else check cables as said before!
