Problem with CD/DVD drive one desktop computer
First the computer i need help with is my desktop computer that i dont use very often, that runs Windows XP, but im trying to install ubuntu 9.10 on it from an old CD i have but the drive wont work. It doesn't work with anything!
So heres what ive found: In my my computer area it shows that there is a "DVD/CD-RW Drive (D: )" and a "CD Drive (E: )" and when i click on the E drive it says to insert a disk into the drive and when i click on drive D it opens to a blank page. Also when i click eject on E nothing happens but when i click it on D the drive opens.
Ive already said this, but when i put a disc in it nothing happens. It doesnt matter what i put in it either, when i put something in the light saying its working blinks a few times then stops and nothing else happens.
I dont have any internet on the desktop. And ive been having this problem on & off since the computer was givin to me, but its never not worked for this long.
