Having problems with your Dell Dimension 4700 PC Desktop ?
Recently upgraded to Office 2007 - now the CD's won't read.
\015 Since I upgraded my Office software my DVD/CD RWR will read and run DVDs but not CD's. It will not read anything that applies to a CD and will not write to them either. Instead I get an error message saying there is no disc in the drive. I suspect a corrupt driver for the CD side of the unit as it runs briefly when a disc is inserted, but evidently can't 'see' anything that is a CD.\015
