TSST TS-H653N optical drive will not read or write

Please Help!!!

I have a HP dc5750 microtower computer with a TSST TS-H653N optical drive which mysteriously quit reading or writing. Device Manager (Windows XP) says the the device is functioning properly using Microsoft driver version 5.1.2535.0 dated 7/1/2001. Yet, when a disc is inserted it will spin and flash the light for about a minute but not recognize the disc. What is going on? It was working fine just last week.

First check the BIOS setup. Then check the jumper settings on the drive and also the ide cable.

All of those things are unchanged from last week when it was functioning just fine. I don’t know what happened.

Then check the event viewer for entries since then…
