GGRRRRR … i think my drive just died. blanks, burned and pressed cd/dvd discs aren’t being detected at all. whenever i put in a disc all i hear is clicking from the lense trying to detect the disc. the pc can detect the drive but not the disc inside.
everything was working fine last night but after 5 failed attempts to burn to same batch of MCC 02RG20 media, the drive just stopped detecting discs. i’ve tried rebooting the pc and reflashing the firmware but it’s still the same.
now i’ve got 3 options, rma the drive and hope the new one doesn’t die out, or get either the nec-3550 or pioneer 110d. does anyone have a suggestion on what to do?
