I am at my wits end. This morning, I was burning audio cd's on my laptop, so that I caould play them on my way to college. I burned the first CD sucessfully. When I put the second cd in, and started the burning process, the cd drive started making this unusual clicking sound as it spun. A few seconds later, it spit out the cd, claiming their was an error.
Fine. Previously, their might have been something wrong with the disc. So, I inserted another cd. Same clicking noise, same spit out, same error message...again...and again...and again....
I now know this is not a problem with the disc, because they CD-R's I am using are all brand new. Does it have something to do with the cd rom drive and that weird clicking sound? The only thing that has changed are the two fist shaped dents that are now on my keyboard. Somebody, help! Do I need to replace the drive? Did dust or something get in there and is now interfering with the burn process? I swear that I didn't change any settings between burns; I only changed the audio files I put on it.
For those who need specs, I am using a Toshiba Satelite A65 laptop, Windows XP, Dvd/cd-rw drive.
