Wont read or recognise there is acd inserted
\015 Wont read or recognise there is a cd inserted ... It just happened.. I use it all the time with convert X to DVD and Nero.. Both applications think there is no cd in the drive.. I know the drive doesnt think so either. The green light goes out after inseting any cd or dvd both written too and or blank. the green light ususally stays on indicating there is a dvd or cd inside. Its not doing that at all.. I tried updating from firmware 1.02 to the latest 1.11 , it installed and was updated but didnt fix the problem.. I also tried to reinstall nero etc.. nothing worked... The drive just doesnt see the disc inserted at all.\015
When you open my computer do you see the drive in the window? If the drive does not show up in this window you can check two things, check to be sure that the cable connecting the drive to the mother board is good. And the other issue could be that the drive itself has gone bad. If it is unable to read any cd's then you probably need a new drive. Be sure to put in several cd's to be sure it is not the cd disk.
