Gce-8525b wont read disks suddenly

Hey guys

My gce-8525b suddenly cant read any discs. Havent changed anything on my system, so it makes no sense. Have flashed to firmware 1.05 to try “reset” device, same problem.

Swapped drive to another system, as master, only drive on cable, secodnary controller, same issue.

Drive is getting power, ejects fine, starts to spin up, then slows down again, as if struggling to read disc, then stops.
Original cd’s give same problem, not only cdr’s

Any suggestions?
