• Windows XP problem... Windows has decided to not see my two DVD drives, and will no longer search for any file

    When I put discs into either of the drives they spin away happily, but nothing happens. In Explorer there is no mention of either disc. The windows search option is no longer on the on the 'start' menu and if I try to access the facility from windows Explorer nothing happens. It used to do all of these things. Are the two problems... show more

The windows search option is no longer on the on the 'start' menu and if I try to access the facility from windows Explorer nothing happens. It used to do all of these things. Are the two problems connected in some way? I have a Linux disc. when my pc runs that it sees the two drives, so I know that they are still working. Is there some fix or way to sort this out, please? I do not have the original windows install discs any more, so cannot just do a re-install.

  • So - how exactly does this work... can I earn points through asking questions?

    I did look through the help section, but it wasn't so clear. Will I now have lost some of my precious points for asking this...? *sob* ;-(
