My CD Rom isn't working and I checked the error log and it says it has a bad block. Anyone know what that means. and can it be fixed?

Where did you check the error log and what were you doing when it occurred?

I checked the error log in my help and support. I have a Dell computer. The CD Rom hasn't been working right for a while and now it doesn't work at all. I wasn't doing anything, just checking to see if I could find out what was wrong with it.

Wow I am late replying to this thread sorry :huh: In general when I come across a bad Cd/DVD rom drive I clean it out really good with compressed air and check the laser internally (If the customer wants to pay for it. its actually cheaper for them to replace it unless its blue ray) if this doesn't solve the problem I just replace it. Drives are inexpensive enough just to replace when they go bad. In my experience other than the lasers I am not really sure what causes them to go bad unless its a firmware problem.
