Hmm....I tried the drive on my other PC, and at first, it just did NOT read any CD i put into it, but i was able to eject w/CD in there, though. Next, it acted like before, and got stuck and would NOT eject again. However, after i shutdown, i put in a DVD, namely Vista Home basic SP1, and voila! It read it quite nicely:bigsmile: I also tried a DVD+R, and that worked too!!
Now, i tried to burn an ISO to CD, but it did NOT work. Initially, it would NOT take the CD-RW, then after a few tries with a CD-R, it detected it. But, i heard strange LOUD noises during the burn, and it was a bit slower than usual. The ISO was only 415 MB, and it took about 4 minutes. After that, Nero said 'Burn process failed, i saved the log, and attached it here.
I'm confused, if it reads DVDs, but NOT read/burn CDs. How is that possible?? How could only a part of the laser be failing? Or does the drive use something else to read/burn CDs than DVDs??? Is there some limit to how many times you can read and/or burn a CD??? Can i somehow repair the drive?
