External Burner Problem

I have an external USB Samsung SE-W164C and up until recently everything was working fine. Now though the drive wont read CD’s/DVD’s and obviously cant burn them, but windows recognizes the drive just not the CD in it. I’ve tried the latest firmware and rolled back to older firmware, still no change. I tried connecting it to another PC same problem, re-installed XP no change either.

Any ideas of what the problem might be?

Test the drive on another computer. If it fails, RMA it.

Is there anybody who knows the solution for the problem as mentioned by Marbuck2. I have bought the same DVD writer and experience the same problem. I have brought it back to the supplier and I got a new one, but now again I have the same problems. :sad:
