Answers :

Reinstall cd/dvd rom software. First delete the stuff already on the pc. Then reinstall latest drivers from device manager or manufacture's website. To get to device manager, control panel, maintenance & performance and device manager.
It should not change. The device list will only display whats on your pc. I would try reinstalling the drivers for the CD/RW drive. make sure the new one your installed says CD/RW on the front of the drive and that its not just a DVD rom..

My dell inspiron 9300 reads and plays DVDs, but does not detect any other type of CD in the CD/DVD drive (music, data, etc.). i've had a problem before where it didn't read CDs or DVDs and it turned out to be a corrupt registry (caused by some AV software that i had installed). this time, there is no error message, other than it asks to insert a disc when there is a disc already in the drive. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! thanks!
