DVD/CD burner problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Couldn't find the right spot for this, so it can be moved if there is one. This DVD drive is the single remaining piece of my original computer, everything else has changed since 08. I'll periodically get weird issues, like Power Calibration errors, it won't eject 1/10 times, and it also won't start reading discs until I try to access it, then it spins up. The problem is it forgets it shortly after. I'll be in the middle of a game, and it goes from back to DVD Burner in My Computer.

Is this poor guying dying, or could it be a software issue?

My bet is that it's about at the end of its line. While a CD drive does seem like it would be minimalisticly problematic, all parts have their days. I'd suggest just getting a new CD replacement from newegg or something, or even head down to your local tech store (radio shack, best buy, etc) and just buy a CD/DVD reader.
Best of luck

Ya, I guess for $20 it lasted as long as I could help. Maybe I'll splurge and get a blu-Ray >.>
