well what this sounds like to me is that your drive is going bad :frowning:

sorry :frowning:

p.s. did you try using all different kinds of cd’s? like regular cd’s and not cd-r’s etc… ?

The same thing has happened to me with my old 8x ricoh. I had to open it up and check it out. There was a rubber string or something that was losened up (i suppose it was needed for motilising the tray). I just put it in place and voila the drive worked (not for long unfortunately :frowning: ). Hope this helps

The best thing to do though is to return the drive for service if it’s still under guarantee :wink:

o no!!! i hope not!!!
