there i was, happily burning some dvds using nero when a burn failed due to a bad disc.
i put in another and… nothing
nero was acting as if there was no dvd in the drive even though there was.
since this time the drive hasnt been working at all - for blank dvds, cds, pressed dvds, cds, burnt cds, dvds.
it will eject etc, windows recognises it - it’s just that it will never believe there is a disc in the drive.
thing is… i’m sure this happened 1 time previously, and then fixed itself quickly.
but not this time…
it’s a nec 1100 drive if that helps.
anyone know of a method to somehow fix this or could it be dead lasers?
only thing is it’s cds as well as dvds and unless i’m wrong these use 2 different lasers?
thanks in advance!
