Optiarc dvd rw ad 7240s drive r

Hello,I have Windows 7 Ultimate on a new computer system. Recently, I tried to install software from Sony Ericsson to read my phone. It
did not work. No surprise with Win 7! But now my orptiarc 7240 will not read a disc of any kind. Windows, even after a fresh install off USB drive, and on all partitions, recognizes the drive. It has a volume letter. I have tried everything in the Win 7 help forums. I tried re-"flash"ing it. Nothing works! What can I do short of buying a different, non-sony optical drive?

  1. Excuse me for the typo. It's Optiarc, not 'orptiarc'. Maybe this will make it easier to search.
  2. Try running this diagnostic scan.
