Well, I bought this around Christmas, and been having this problem for awhile. i was ignoring it, just using my other drives, but I want to see if I can get this fixed before I buy a new burner. Okay, this is the problem. Everything was working fine until around April. Then, one day, I put a cd in to burn and the drive accepts it. I go into Nero, and I hit copy. Well, the drive says there is no disc. Okay. I go to open up the drive and it will not open. I try "eject" from My Computer, opening at restart, etc. Nothing. I checked the hardware and the device manager says everything is fine, blah, blah, blah. I am thinking it might be electrical, or mabey it is just a configuration screw up. My specs are:
AMD 3200+ 2.0 GHZ
1.0gb of GSkill ddr RAM at 126.96.36.199 latency
MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum Motherboard
60GB 5400rpm Maxtor and 2 80gb 7200rpm Western Digital HD (one internal, other external)
Windows XP Home SP2
anything else, let me know. thanks for any possible help, i appreciate it greatly.
