Is my Sony DRU720ATA dead?

Hi guys

I was burning a CD a couple of days ago when the drive started to make strange noises. The burning was unsuccessful and the drive is now completely unable to recognize any new CD.

I have tried downgrading the FW and upgrading it back to JY08 but nothing changed. I have also tried to clear al the calibration history with Omnipatcher and all the different options in EEPROM Utility but no luck.

I just wonder if there is anything I can do apart from thowing it to the wastebin :sad:

Thanks a lot !!!

Hi and Welcome!

the “strange noise” is an indicator for a hardware failure. Seems, it’s time to go shopping…


many thanks mciahel, I’ll do so. It’s a pity since it was working really perfect till then thanks again!
