Having problems with your PC Desktops ?
Cd drive isn't working
\015 The drive has gone from working occassionally to not at all. when i look at the properties for it, it is looking like the disk is full , but i don't understand how that can be. it is not a storage disk but the lite-on dvdrw shw-160h6s. i discs that need to be installed and it simply won't read them.\015
I just had this happen to me as well. Try opening the case and re-seating all the connectors on the DVD drive and the mother board. If the drive still will not operate after that you may have to purchase a new one. They are fairly cheap and easy to install.
