Hy guys,

I have problem with SHW-1635S02C that I bought on eBay.

The drive works (ejects door) but he can’t read any blank or recorded CD/DVD.

When I put any CD/DVD he tries to read it but no success

I’ve updated firmware to YS0Z but no changes.

Any ideas guys?

Thanks

Hey tmen15 and welcome to [B]MyCE[/B].

Have you tried booting from a bootable CD (like a Windows installation or Linux Live CD)? This might tell us whether it’s a software or a hardware issue.

And is it jumpered correctly (master/slave/…)?

thanks mate.

I tried to boot but drive can’t read windows cd and after about 1 minute windows boot normal.

Jumpers are set correctly and BIOS reads drive.

If the drive can’t read the Windows CD at all despite correct jumpering and boot sequence setting, the drive’s optical unit itself may be dead. In that case, the drive must be replaced.

Second opinion anyone? :flower:

You should contact the seller and demand a refund since it is defective.

drive moves lens an tries to read CD/DVD so I thought that I can do something to repair it.

thanks

The drive is really old. How long ago did you buy it and how much?
