Hi everyone, I’ll just get to the point.
I have a HL-DT-ST DVD-ROM GDR8163B and it doesn’t recognize any disc I put in (DVD or CD). Now, since this is my dad’s computer and he doesn’t really know computers, I can’t tell when was the last time this device worked (but I do know it did before) or what was the thing that caused it to malfunction.
I tried several discs (both DVD’s and CD’s) and none of them worked. Just to be sure there’s nothing wrong with the discs, I also tried some of the CD’s on my CD-R burner and it did work.
I’m clueless as to what the problem is and would appreciate any help you guys can offer.
P.S. I don’t know if this helps, but here’s my Nero InfoTool data:
