#87

Reading should be less burdensome than writing, but overall it should also cause deterioration.

Don´t use actual a C-drive but I guess the B and D series are very similar.


#88

It’s the first drive from what I can remember that died without showing any signs of hardware failure (with motor, tray etc). One minute it was working fine and the next it was dead.


#89

Completely dead? No LED blinking, no noise?


#90

Nothing.


#91

My defect LiteOns, mostly old CD-ROM/RW, and DVD-RW died in an other way, the drives start to fail at recognize discs


#92

I had a LiteOn that stopped recognizing discs and was replaced under warranty, but not this one.


#93

This kind of defect isn´t known by me, and I had/have many drives. Maybe a soldering-poblem? Or a defect capacitor.


#94

I still have the drive, but I did not bother to open it and check inside what might be the problem.


#95

Dunno your electronic-skills :wink: , but I would take a look on the power-connector first, it´s the easiest.


#96

The power connector looks fine. There are two small capacitors on the board, but they also look fine and I see no other soldering problem.


#97

Now it´s getting complicated, except you have good skills and equipment to locate the problem
