It could be that the laser died, but to be sure I would install your LG in another computer…

We i just tried the drive as my only boot up option, to make sure it was not a windows/software fault.

But it still wont boot up my windows installation cd…So im guessing the drive is f**ked…

AS this is the only drive iv had could you please recommend me a new one that i could buy…I do loads of burning of dvd’s…but it would need to be cheap’ish as i dont have lots of money

Thanks
