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
