Hey,

\015\012most of the time its a broken down drive. do you have warranty on it? if you do, get warranty repairs.
\015\012
\015\012if you don't, then try it on another computer if you can if it does the same thing on another computer, then its definitely faulty, you could try a lens cleaner they don't cost much.
