Plextor 716A DVD R

I’ve had this DVD R 716 A since it came out with no problems and all of the sudden it won’t reconize a cd or dvd in the drive to burn to! Any suggestions? Yes I am newbie toa this since i haven’t been keeping up with all of my pc. Due to being real busy with other things. Please help???
What happened? WHen I got the ddrive I never got any software. Would that help? Probally not as I haven’t needed it so far.


Hi ds888 and Welcome to CDFreaks. You can run the self diagnostic test as explained here. If the test fails your contact Plextor about possible RMA.
