i installed a ad-7200A-OB AND IT IS SEEN IN THE DEVICE MANAGER AND SAYS IT IS WORKING PROPORLY BUT IT WONT READ ANY DISC :a
How long have you had this device and have you clean the laser lens of the unit? From what it sounds like a IDE burner and could be that it’s old and needs cleaning the insides of it. So does it read cd or dvd or neither ?? But it does sound like the laser isn’t reading anymore but if you can open up the case and genlty clean the laser lens and try again and if that doesn’t work and the connects are good and secure. Then the most likely case is the drive isn’t no longer functioning.
Some people try to read blank media, but this is impossible, because these discs are… empty. So, it is normal if the drive cannot “read” a blank disc.
Can you explain better what is the problem? Do you have problems to read burned or pressed discs or both? Do you have this problem with CD or DVD or both?
