ok just yesterday i installed a game(hl2 5 cd's) with my tdk 32x cd burner. I also have a plextor 716a which i had used prob a few days eailer. i just got my 716 about 2 months ago its been working great till today.
so today i try to play a game and it won't read any cd's...neither drive reads any
kind of cd or dvd or w/e. i couldn't believe that both drives would be broke!!
when i put in a disc both drives blink there lits 2 times and pause. on tdk the light is green on the plextor it is amber. i went to the plextor site i cann't remember what the code was for but it didn't help for nothin.
also when i double click on my plextor drive in my computer it says cann't be accesed i/o device error...my other drive just says insert cd.
so..first thing that came to mind was my ide cable...i had a brand new spare cable put it in and still the same problem. so then i updated my plextor firmware and that didn't help either.
p.s. i also went into device manager and put ide in pio mode didn't help. switched back to auto or w/e.
so im stuck and need your help and here are my computer specs incase you need them.
amd 2100+ xp
512mb corsair platnium extreme legacy
ati 9800 pro aiw
asus motherboard cann't remember model
