Real radio stations never close for Christmas, and this one was very active because on Christmas Eve the CD/DVD Drive stopped connecting and the troubleshoot that followed lasted all day Christmas and just got fixed.
The Windows Trouble Wizard said “Uninstall it and Reintall it,” which I did that several times until convinced that it wasn’t going to work.
Last night until past midnight I patrolled the storage junk looking for a spare drive but only found a SCSI type, which will not fit an IDE socket.
Today I remembered that the old HP computer, the one I keep tripping over, had an IDE drive inside.
Taking computers apart and unhooking connectors is an easy way to lose a hand, but the job got done only to find that the replacement drive also failed.
That’s when I tried a Windows Restore Point to yesterday when, guess what, I had uninstalled and re-installed iTunes. That’s what caused the problem.
Now the CD Drive is working again, but I have the old “defective” version of iTunes back again. Actually, all versions of iTunes are defective.
How was Christmas, by the way? I missed it.
