When I put one in, it usually sounds like it is working, but when I click on the drive it says to insert disk. It worked until a couple months ago, maybe (got it in October). I wanted to know if there was anything that I could do to fix it. I usually just use it as a normal cd reader, I don’t think I ever tried to burn anything. It seems to me that when it quit working was when I was trying to install a computer game, and I had to install it with my other cd drive (the door doesn’t work on that one, I have to force it open). Could something have changed with that game?

This is no real Pio drive but Asus rebadged, IIRC, and a bad drive from what i read.

Try to boot from cd and dvd and post the results.
