    More optical drive woes

    I have a Toshiba C55 laptop running Win7 x64. On Woody's green light, I installed the latest round of updates, which apparently broke the CD/DVD drive. System can't or won't see it. Twice I have restored to the restore point before updates, problem fixed, installed updates again, problem reappears, restored again, problem solved. Several hours of googling only led me to the MS Fixit tool which I used once before, but it didn't resolve the issue this time.

    Anyone have any suggestions? My next move is to install 22 updates one at a time until one of them replicates the problem.

    Thanx in advance,

    Tom

    Open Device Manager, right click on the CD and select Uninstall.
    Reboot and let Windows re-install the CD.

    cheers, Paul
