[QUOTE=Albert;2692413]Pardon me for my short reply.
Yes, there is different hardware in the drive for CD and DVD support.
On those earlier drives, we would see cases where the CD hardware would go out before the DVD hardware. Frequently, this would happen at the same time as a firmware update or some other event, but really, the hardware just went bad.[/QUOTE]
Hello Albert, did you mean that the CD hardware of this drive is broken because of some reasons, instead of “missing some hardware by nature” of this particular OEM drive to handle CDs?
