O.K. last night i tried to play a dvd movie in my laptop. Well, the disk drive wouldn't respond and it wasn't even showing up in my computer. I tried everything but to no avail, so i restored back to before itunes was installed. Yay, i got my drive back. Well the first thing i did was install itunes again, but when it gets done installing it tells me that it wasn't installed completely and that I will not be able to burn cd's. Itunes is f***ing with my hardware and drivers. What the f***! Now I'm gonna have to restore cause i can't figure it out otherwise. Any suggestions on how i can keep my cd-rom and have itunes as well? Ridley Well i did the restore to this morning and low and behold my cd burner is back and ready to use. Why is itunes causing my optical drive to just disappear?
