hi to everyone,it’s my first time here,and i wanted to congratulate for the site and forum…unluckly i’m here for a bad problem
after writing a cd in my nec dvd writer 4550A, i get an error message (couldn’t write) but in a cd-rom reader it can be read…
anyway now my writer won’t read virgin cd-dvd,and written cd or dvd…and it makes a strange sound when i inserst a cd or dvd…i think some mechanic sound…
then when i start my pc,windows won’t start if i don’t open my writer…and anyway it always does some sound that didn’t do before…
is it broken?or maybe some mechanic problem?i tried to uninstall it and reinstall but won’t work…
it hasn’t been used much…and i bought it some month ago…
any of u has some solution?
thanks for helping and patient…:smiley:

p.s. sorry for my bad english

Try to boot from bootable CDs and DVDs to find out if the drive is damaged or not.
