I am having a problem with my Acer Aspire 5100 laptop.
About 2 weeks ago, my LiteOn optical drive started to disappear from windows periodically. I thought that maybe the drive had gone bad or that I screwed it up because around that time I was playing around with LTNFlash, so I replaced the drive with a old NEC I had laying around. However, that has not solved the problem. The drive still periodically will disappear from windows. I am worried the problem may be hardware based as I once went into the BIOS when the LiteOn was still in the laptop and it didn’t list the drive as being there.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance,
