Is from old comp - works fine (always did) - the make i dunno cos i'd have to open up again. I dont game but plays all my audio/wma/mp3 fine. Yes burned and bought CD's. All lights are red/grreen - never orange...windows tests etc were all 'is working fine' - all drivers are up to date...maybe it's too old for my system? idk...there's a 5 yr difference....and ty for the advice :) [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by guidogodoy from Tuesday, February 17, 2009 8:18:33 PM)
Just about off to the gym but let's see if I understand and ask a couple of questions. Is it a new drive? Does it play discs at all? CDs, BURNED CDs (big difference there) and read video games? All or none of the previous. Has it EVER worked? Again, does the drive light (little led on the drive ITSELF) flash? If so, what color. Ever go orange instead of green?
What is the make of the drive, if you know? Start by answering these and it'll help narrow down the trouble. Sounds like an easy one if a reboot fixes it and, again, I am leaning towards dirty laser.
May not see this answer soon. Off to run a few miles.
Ah - the 'Skip In The Tail' reveals itself...who taught her to open threads..?
Anyway - the standard arrow/pointer flashes with a CD symbol - like is scanning the drive, after u scan or play a disc..when open or loaded = np. Reboot gets rid.
Gonnae find oot who is givin' her lessons....lol.
