DVD Drive

Postby CodeZTM » Sun Dec 16, 2007 8:57 pm

Ok, for some unexplained reason my DVD/CD Drive has just crapped out on me. It still opens/closes, but cannot read anything. I put in a DVD, nada. I put in a CD, nada?

Any suggestions before I go shopping? -_-

And, yes, I have tried all of the following: Removing/Reinstalling Drivers, Restarting Computer, ect...

possibly turned-off in your Bios area -- you've got a Virus!

Are you using any drive emulating devices for running ISOs on your system without burning the disc for it? I've had issues with my system recognizing my DVD drive after i did that on multiple occasions.

Hehehe.. Well, no...

I went and stole/replaced the DVD drive from my computer and the family computer (very discreetly). Mine works fine now, but the downstairs can't play DVD's and my dad is pissed. ^_^

So i'm assumed the problem was the DVD drive itself.

/fixed (and saved myself some cash)
