I'm trying to fix the CD drive on my friend's computer. He's running Windows XP. The problem is that the CD-RW won't read CDs. I can put one in the drive but it won't recognize that there's a disc in there at all. The drive shows up in My Computer and all the cables connecting the drive to the motherboard/power supply are seated.
I got it to work ONCE, when installing AOL (I know, I know, but that's only temporary, I hope). But it just won't read anything now. Anyone know how to troubleshoot this? (I hope he doesn't have to buy another drive.)
