Dvd Drive not working anymore

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So i've got a strange problem here i have an external E60l lg dvd drive that used to read dvd-rom, specifically my SC2 disk(forgot to grab the files before reinstall), now it wont read it (well it did for a bit but was super slow/unusable). I've tried reinstalling the driver switching usb ports but it wont read dvd-rom, dvd-rw seems to work fine.
Any ideas?

Heres my current build
i5 2500k
Asus p67 Sabertooth
8 gig corsair vengence
etc

old one in sig

I would think that it was broken if it didnt work with all dvds but it seems to be just dvd-rom

I think it might be the laser, I'm not sure but I think they use a different laser for DVD vs CD. DVD is red, while CD in infrared.
