  1. Possible its dead, the other PC here had the same prob. No matter what I tried it didnt make any sound or read anything either

    So I replaced it. It just died completely
  2. It's most likely dead. Considering how cheap CD/DVD burners are today, it isn't worth fussing over. Just buy a new one.
  3. i know they are cheap but i thought weird the dvd drive working perfectly now and the next minute its dead.
    and without any ``dying sound``;P
  4. Earlier this year, mine did the same thing. I burned a dvd with no problems. A day later it did nothing - no warning signs. I replaced it with a $17 burner and was back in business.
  5. okay..thanks a lot for your answer hawkeye
  6. No problem. report back if you continue to have problems, but I think you covered your bases well.
  7. Best answer
    One way to get around the not being able to load bootable disc is creating bootable USBs. I never use a DVD for things like Windows installs anymore
