Dying drve?

I’ve got an old PATA Sony DVD recorder drive (4x), and it’s not reading dvds after being on for a bit. When I cold-boot the computer after 20-30min break, it’d read a DVD but then, after being on for 15-30 minutes, it won’t read anything. Admittedly, it wasn’t in use for a few months but is this a sign I need a new drive? Any band-aid solution to prolong the service life of this drive?

It’s only 4x?! Definitely time for a new burner. They’re relatively cheap now.

Is there cash for clunkers for DVD drives?

We wish. I’ll send an email to President Obama and check. :bigsmile:
