the drive is a combo drive, I have had it in my athlon 1700 for about a year till I put it in my d805. anyways I loaded xp up on the 805 everything seems fine, when I try to load half life 2 it installs steam but the steam dll something is missing, did this on the 805 and 1700 the disc however loads everything fine on my acer laptop. also I loaded up san andreas and it worked fine on the initial run but now wont load at all, it acts like its finding the cd but then stops. so I went to lite on and downloaded the newest firmware, and decided to reload xp now its cannot copy some of the setup files. I have also tried cleaning the lense with a disc cleaner. anything else I can do or is the drive sol. I also read on newegg that people who bought this same drive says about after 6 months it either stops reading cds or dvds.
