I bought the Liteon SOHW -1653SX external drive a few months ago and just recently it's started to not recognise DVDs. It will play some dvds and not others. What happens is when I place a disc in the drive and set it off, you can hear it trying to pick it up, then it just starts to make a shuddering noise.
I've never updated the firmware on it since I bought it (wouldn't know how to) it's something which seems to happen on a much more regular basis.
Can anyone help? I'm using it on a PC with Windows XP
