How long for 708a self-diagnostic to run?!

So I finally got a chance to diag this drive. The test with a CD-ROM resulted in Success. Only took likw 15-20 minutes top.

I’m going on two hours running a test with a DVD+R disk!

Is my drive so hosed that the self-diagnostics won’t work?

It’s making the same sounds it made when hooked into the computer and I placed a blank DVD in the drive.

I bought this thing when it was a new product, I guess I got my use out of it :smiley:

Yeah ran for 18 hours or so with nothing NOTHING!

I smashed it with a little sledgehammer. POS.
