I have Windows Xp, and for about 4 years My Plextor PX-708A served me well with Reading, burning etc etc.
For a few weeks now, (After reinstalling XP, wiping my computer clean) The Drive will not read any CDs or DVDs.
Everything is detected, And it does work for about a minute apon Explorer.exe loading, afterwhich, it just keeps spinning any disc inside it and If Anything is in the process of installing, it crashs the program, Then i can’t even open it, or my other plain old CD reader.
If I want to eject the disc, I need to stick a pin in the hole and push, buuut the Disc keeps spinning, and the Reader doesn’t stop.
I’ve tried upgrading the firmware, Uninstalling / reinstalling the drive, practically everything.
Hope you could :-p
