On the second call Dell said the drive is bad. Unfortunately, Dell does not have any updates or drivers or firmware for my CDRW drive which is kinda ridiculous, if you asked me – I have done a search in the forums for GCEB prior to posting my message and it seems that a LOT of people are having problems with this model and nobody from Dell seems to have any kind of valid answer.

On repeated attempts to run diagnostics on the CDRW drive it started telling me that “no data disk loaded into drive”, so now I am completely baffled.

It instantly recognises the hardware, loads the drivers, the CDRW is back in the device manager and My Computer setup, but it xt not read or burn any CD that I load into it! Somewhere on here they had a util to test it. I have a rather unusual problem – one day the CD-RW drive stopped recognising all media, whether it’s data or audio cd’s or blank CDR’s.
