Combo Samsung SN-324B stop reading cd's / dvd's

Ok, this is my problem:

Suddenly my optical drive stops reading all kind of optical disks. The last one was Win XP Pro. :stuck_out_tongue:

I’ve already updated the firmware and even disconnected the drive, to clean with a clean pencil the electrical contacts of the bus, but the problem persists.

I wonder if anybody here had been already faced with this kind of situation.

Thanks for your attention!

Hi and be welcome!

Have you tried to use your drive when not in Windows? A good way to try this is to try to boot from the XP installation disc. If it boots, the drive is clearly able to read your discs, so most likely, you have some software issue.
