Hi, the mentioned cd burner just stopped responding one day, it does not recognize cd's at all, the trey opens and closes fine, but whatver cd I put in it does ot read it, nor can I burn anything with it, I did not add any new programs lately, it just happened all of a sudden, once i wanted to buen a cd and it said there was some error, and after that it just stopped working
There is a good chance it went to the great computer in the sky. Given you can get a good DVD burner for $30, e.g., Samsung or Lite-On, I'd just get a new one. If it's under warranty, send it back but I'd still get a new one because it's likely to take several weeks to get it back and it never hurts to have an extra one.
lol i was thinking about that, lol just got a pioneer dvd /cd burner couople months back, (good that i did ), and this one worked fine for me for atleast 2 years, it was one of the first to allow for burning images/text onto the cd and that was 2 or 3 years ago, before that (i forgot what was teh name of it) technology got all popular about a year or so ago, guess ill have to swap the dvd burner from the external enclosure to the cp case lol, and play a bit with the old drive....maby there is still hope ...2 bad i liked that drive, it was very quiet, and fast
