I have a LG GDR-8162B dvd-rom drive that has been working fine for about 2 years but recently i got problems. Whatever dvd or cd i put in it (that previously worked) it just keeps trying to read for about a minute and the drive starts making these ticking sounds after which it gives up and the cd or dvd is still not recognised.
I’ve checked the cables inside the computer and they all seem ok.
The device manger in windows says the drive is working correctly.
Anything i can try or is the drive as good as dead?
