  1. I have Windows Vista Home Basic and the Dvd Rom Drive has suddenly stopped reading any disk. It will start to spin the disk then it will just stop. The computer doesn't read as if the disk is there. What should I do to fix this problem? Would uninstalling the Driver then reinstalling it work or would that screw up other things?

    I am having the same problem I tried the uninstall and reinstall didn't work but might for you. The computer doesn't show that there is a disk drive installed but it shows that it is working properly hope someone can help.
