What's this all about then...?



Hey all,hope someone can help me on this one!

I have a Lite on dvdrw shw-1635s model.It has served me well for the last 8 months untill yesterday when it decided to sort of not work.

It’s playing dvd’s…and that’s it.Doesn’t wanna read audio or data cd’s;whenever I put one of those in it makes a weird mechanical noise where as with a DVD it goes as it should.I have tried changing drivers to no avail.

Anyone have any idea of what to do or do I just need to get a new drive?

If you haven’t made any changes to your system or hardware and all of a sudden you start hearing a “weird mechanical noise” there is a VERY good chance your drive is dying/dead. You could try it in a different PC or maybe on a different IDE channel with a different molex power plug put into it. But I wouldn’t waste the time myself. At least the good news is it’s still under warranty. :iagree:
