The National Do Not Call Registry worked well for a while. Legitimate companies were generally very compliant and the violations that did occur were rare. Those that did violate the law were subject to heavy fines. Then suddenly, in the last couple of years, the number of junk calls started climbing. Nearly 48 billion robocalls went out in 2018, according to the YouMail Robocall Index. And that number is ever-growing. Today, it’s gotten to the point that you need every advantage you can get to keep the robocallers at bay. So we’re going to take a look at what’s out there to help you.

    Read Data? Sounds broken to me. Except you mentioned you just bought it. Windows shoulda recognized new device when you plugged it in. Loaded driver and firmware I would think. Did you run the disk that came with external dvd purchase to load their stuff that they supply?
