As the title states, my disk drive won't work. I will put in a disk, but it will not do anything. I hear a sound of which might be the cd spinning, but it sounds like it might be getting stuck or something, although there is nothing blocking it (sounds similar to a record player playing a disc but getting stuck, over and over) I have attempted to clean it out, restart the system and even check the cd's for scratch's, all of which have not done anything to help it. The system itself is 9 years old, so a failure on it would not amaze me.
I would like assistance in what my next plan of action should be and how much will it cost?
I took your advice and looked for lose cables, of witch there are none. I also noticed that when i insert a disk it gains power, but then losses it and repaets those steps 4 times without finally giving out.
Also, your idea to buy a dvd-rom to replace it is something i suppose i will have to do if no other fixes can be made.
