Hello, I have a DVD drive that has seemed to have failed but I really don't want to get another one! In device manager (running win 8) it says it has a power failure but I have checked the SATA Power cable and that isnt the problem.

Thanks.

if the power cable is hooked up and same one feeds other items and DVD not working then it is the DVD drive. they are not expense any more so should be not problem...

True, but I can still open and close it but it dosen't load so I want to figure out why before I go get a new one

open and closing is one mechanism, playing will be another!

You could at least open it up and see if the rubber band is still there that does the spin

this will help source
