i have a cw058d cd-r/rw drive. and just recently it has
stopped working. i am able to access the drive while
double clicking and it goes into the cd rom. however no
files are listed. i never see the drive working or
flashing. it used to be listed as a cd-rw drive and now
it just says cd rom and will not recognize any type of
media inserted. i tried reinstalling and uninstalling the
drivers and nothing ever happens, still acts the same
way. i have searched the internet and no one seems to
have the same problem. i have not done any updates
recently or installed anything that may have caused the
problem. hopefully someone can help, thanks
