OK the cdrw/dvd drive was reading cds perfectly a while ago, this was before i updated windows xp to the max, installed graphic card drivers, mobo drivers the works!!!
Now it appears that the cdrw/dvd drive doesnt want to read cds at all anymore.
Why has this happened? Sorry if this sounds really nooby but i have tried all the obvious options...
and yeah i did a search but i didnt find much..
P.S Specs are down below
