recently developed some problems with my SAMSUNG SD-608 DVD ROM on win 98
first noticed some data disks were taking a long time to read and some wouldn't auto start, install disks often never complete
audio has intermittent sound, 30 secs fine then a couple of secs silence and so on
dvds not working at all, can't even browse the files in explorer
have tried booting from windows diskette with cdrom enabled, can dir at dos prompt for data discs but not cds or dvds
my question : is there anymore troubleshooting I can do or is it time for a new drive ?
