My 708A stopped reading cd’s in December, so I Rma’d. Very good RMA service, got a brand new sent to me in replacement.
But as good as the service was tonight my new drive has developed the same problem. There are no probs with dvd’s, just does not detect any cd’s what so ever, blank, burned, or otherwise.
The light just flashes green 5 times, and stops 5 times, and stops, and according to this link:
,since I have checked plenty of disks, it basicly means my drive is screwed.
I am so afraid that this is some inherant problem with the drive, as I bought my original drive second hand so have no receipt, meaning I only get 1 years warranty from manufacture date, so if I get another and it screws up too… I mean I cant keep getting replacements
Could be something to do with the mobo I am using it with ? an MSI K7N2 Delta -ILSR, after the last one stopped working I tried it on one of my toher computers too and had the same prob, so I am thinking more in terms of the mobo killing it rather than just not working with it, as until the drive have stopped working I have had no probs.
One other thing which I am wondering about is last night I just installed Nero6, before then I was using nero5, and today it stops working …
Now I am not sure, but I think it may have been the day after I installed the Nero6 Demo that my drive stopped working last time.
Is this a common problem with this drive then ? Will I have a problem getting my drive replaced for a second time ? Will have to try ringing up tomorrow
Any and all input is appreciated
