I had a samsung dvd writer, it was working fine for few years, but last month it started making clicking noise and didn't read any disc, I decided that the drive is dead, so I went and bought a sony optiarc 7220 dvd writer.
The new dvd writer also started making the same noise and it didn't read any disc either. I then checked the drive at my friends place where it seems to works fine. Now I don't now what the problem is, could it have something to do with hardware conflict, sata configuration, driver error, wrong bios setting or anything else.
I have windows xp sp2, gigabyte m61sme motherboard. Hoping to get some answer from this forum
