Today I disconnected everything from my computer and installed an extra 80mm chassis fan booted up my computer and everything went fine or so I thought. I went to eject my CDRW drive and the green light on my Lite-0n CDRW did the blinking thing but for some reason it wouldn’t eject.
I restarted Windows but the same thing kept happening. I then thought I would push a pin in the manual eject hole to see if I could free the problem of a sticky drive bay, if indeed that was the problem and then pushed the tray back in… while the power was off of course. When I started up Windows this time however I noticed it hung for a while and when I pressed the eject button nothing happened at all…No blinking green light or anything. It only blinks once upon restarting windows when it posts but then nothing. I disconnected the extra fan I installed but still “No Joy”.
My bios is seeing the drive correctly as the “Secondary Slave” and its still there in Windows.
I ran LtnFlash 1.2.2 and it sees both my Lite-On DVD and my CDRW drives though it seems to hang before it loads the Initial LtnFlash software interface. I thought to be safe I would try the backup option for my CDRW drive as I’ve done before successfully but all I get now is an error message “Drive not Support this feature!”
I placed the drive in another computer and Windows correctly identified and loaded it up but still No green light after post.
Does anyone have any idea how I should proceed…???
Any ideas as to what the problem might be ??..The drive was working perfectly the last time I used it yesterday:confused:
