DVD writer not working



Hi e/one…
DVD E: drive does not read or performs anything else for that matter. Hardware is Slimtype DVDRW SOSW-852S. I installed the PS3 firmware thinking it might help but it did’nt. I also tried to uninstall and restart my machine but no results.

DVD writer worked fine until a few days ago when I burnt a DVD. Don’t understand what is happening?!?!?!? Any suggestions guys? Runs on an Acer Travelmate 4500 with XP pro.

If no suggestions, do you reckon Acer will repair it - got an insurance to cover and machine only 15 days.


hey man try putting a new IDE cable or cleaning the dvd lens hope this helps




FAUZAN, Welcome to the Forum and the post you answered was almost 4 years old so I think he might have got it fixed by now :slight_smile:
