I have no idea how your drive “went totally dead”. How did this happen??


#5

The first thing was i was not able to burn dvd image with Alcohol 120% because the app toll me that i shut put a blank dvd into the drive but the dvd was blank tthe next thing was when i reboote into F12 for reinstallation of xp it was not able to start that process it just reboote again it startede windows up as normal when i try to play a music cd and so on.


#6

That way it most likely cannot just die.

Have you tried it in another computer??


#7

No and i dont think it a good ide to try to do that anyway this is my only pc so i dont have that option but i still have a vaild Onsite Next Business day warranty so i think dell will replace the NEC ND-2100AD 8X DVD+RW with a new one.

Only if you have luck. When they find out that you have flashed it with a not suitable firmware …
Flashing your drive is at your own risk.

Doesn’t make a difference WHAT update and how do you use it - it’s always at your own risk.

You should contact DELL.
