My DVD burner used to work for all DVD's and CD's, but now it won't recognize any of them. My CD burner (a different drive) works fine though. I unplugged the Master IDE from the working CD Drive and plugged it into the DVD drive (which was formerly Slave) and that didn't wortk either... so I don't think it was a loose/faulty connection. And there is power going to the DVD drive. But the damned thing won't spin, and is never recognized anymore.
Has anybody run into this before? Is my DVD burner dead? If so, it'd be good to know because they're on sale at the local electronics store for $80 CDN. If it's not dead I could try to fix it, but I've tried a lot and nothing's worked. It came with a sound cable or something, but I never plugged it in, and it worked without it so I never bothered. Would that be part of the problem? Thanks in advance.
