Default Problem With My Cd Writer

sponsored links

I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me sort out this problem as i've not been able to do it so far. Its probably a simple thing that i have overlooked.

My PC for some reason does not seem to think it has a CD writer drive as it is not availble for selection in any menu especially my computer. It detects my dvd drive as normal but not my cd writer drive. Yet when i turn my PC on the cd writer drive has its light on which shows that it is (apparently) busy but there is nothing in the drive. It will not open regardless of pressing the eject button or selecting it from a windows menu. The light only goes out for the cd writer when the power is off otherwise it stays on even though it appears to be doing nothing.

Basically, im wanting to use my cd writer drive but its not detected even my nero so im stuck. Any advice would be great.
