my DVD drive game me problems. It is still recognised by the computer
and is, according to the computer, in worling condition. Every time I
put a DVD into this drive, it will spin for about 5 seconds, and then
stop. When I click on the drive in My Computer, it says there is no
disk inserted. I have tried cleaning the lens many times, and don't
know what to do. any ideas?
the drive is made by hitachi-lg. it is a HL-DT-ST DVD-ROM GDR8163B
it is NOT a DVD writer, only reads them.
Re: Problem with DVD Drive
Thats exactly what happens when the drive dies - disk spins up, stops
spinning, then you get a message saying no disk has been inserted.
You should be thankful though. For about the price of a packet of
crisps and a mars bar you can get a brand new DVD burner.30 is about
right. Sometimes you just have to surrender to capitalism and built-in
