I have tried all these things, the drive reads normal CD’s but doesn’t even read the DVD that i copied with it a wile ago. I did order a new drive so I’ll just scrap this one.
cables are correct, the drive hasn’t moved from my case for the past 4 months and it was working fine until a 3 week ago.
it is set as the master drive on the IDE primary slot.
i have removed the drive and let windows install default drivers.
i have updated the firmware.
i have cleaned the lens (manual).
i have even formatted my PC just in case I missed something but the drive still doesn’t work.
My new drive should be arriving today or on Monday.
