Since three weeks ago this drive hasn’t been working properly. It won’t recognize CD-ROMs, audio CDs, or DVDs. However, it will recognize any CD/DVD-Rs or CD/DVD-RWs. It can also burn CDs and DVDs.
What will happen when I put in a CD-ROM, audio CD, or DVD, it won’t make any “spinning” sounds, except you can hear random clicking sounds. Going into My Computer and checking what’s in the drive will show nothing. Then using MS-DOS Command Prompt and trying to go into the drive will get the message, “The device is not ready.”
I don’t know what’s going on and I’d like to fix this problem soon since I’m getting a new region 2 DVD in the mail and this drive is my only way of viewing it. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
