Re: cd-dvd burner issue

replace the drive sounds like your best option if it doesn't spin up a disc

^ true that.

Dirt cheap to replace and far less irritating than trying to figuring out why the old one ain't working.

Does your operating system see your current drive?

Re: cd-dvd burner issue

if you do a lot of ripping/burning, drives die eventually. probably been through 4-5 over 20ish years
