|I recently encountered a problem with my DVD drive. It refused to read any dvds or cds. I kept trying to insert new disks and the green light would just flash and nothing would happen. I tried the "run" function and also tried to play it from the "computer" menu in windows 7. I checked if my driver was still ok, and it there is nothing wrong with it.|
So I continuously tried to insert new disks - it refused to read ANYTHING. It eventually became totally dead with no electrical power (seemingly - light not flashing anymore, won't react when pressing on the eject button). So I pushed the manual override button with a paperclip (in the little hole) to remove my last dvd.
I did nothing that could damage the drive (except leaving disks in there - which is apparently not good). I have an excellent anti-virus program and I have SpeedMaxPc installed which fixes any other problems -not this one though.
Please tell me you know what's wrong and what to do to fix it! Thank you.
