Message 4 of 5. Thank you for helping us maintain CNET’s great community. This was helpful 0. I have the same drive, and it stopped reading CD’s a few years ago. NT You didn’t mention the OS.



Thank you very much. If you’re asking for technical help, please be sure to include all your system info, including operating system, model number, and any other specifics related to the problem. I googled it and got some firmware updates that referenced it was a 16x drive.

From your description, it just sounds like a dead DVD laser. The mysterious thing in your post is “it did not help”.

Log in or Sign up. Flaming or offending other users Illegal activities: I never took the drive out or changed anything until I started to troubleshoot, so I have no idea why it’s not reading DVDs. I tried changing the jumpers in every possible configuration, but with the same result each time, I searched for any firmware I could find, but nothing has worked.

I also didn’t want to buy a new drive, install it and find the same problem because there was another underlying issue not directly related to the optical drive. Message 3 of 5. This site uses cookies. By using this site, you accept the Terms of Use and Rules of Participation.

Your name or email address: Thank you for your help. You mention Firmware though and Firmware updates are software updates to the eprom on the divice itself.


I want to exhaust my resources and make sure the drive gea went bad before I purchase and brand new drive. I don’t think you can find info on it within your PC. Hello friends, I’m hoping someone has an answer for me as I can’t seem to find one anywhere else.

Then again some members have to learn about recording software versus a driver. Yes, my password is: How do you know this?

Some imply 8x are better for numerous reasons archaive life but good proof is difficult to find. This question happens when folk have troubles but without the OS, the story, the age of the drive, what’s failing and more I can’t tell if this is one of the usual failures or the drive has failed.
