Image via WikipediaYesterday morning my Lenovo laptop was unable to recognize a DVD in my Optiarc DVD RW AD7580S. I hadn't used the DVD player for quite awhile and wondered when the problem actually began.
I proceeded to go into Device Manager to check the DVD/CD-ROM drives. There was a yellow exclamation point over the DVD icon for the Optiarc DVD RW AD7580S ATA Device. Since an exclamation point means there is some type of problem, I checked the Properties for the DVD player. An error code of 32 was generated in the Status text box on the General tab in the Device Manager Properties dialog box.
I linked to technet.microsoft.com to find out what Code 32 means. Code 32: A driver (service) for this device has been disabled. An alternate driver may be providing this functionality.
