Hello. First of all, sorry if I posted in the wrong place. While I am a long time "lurker", I'm a first time poster =P
Anyway, I my PC is Windows XP, and today I wanted to write some music into my cd, but when I inserted it, nothing happened. The cursor did show a spinning disc and the computer made some werid clicky noises. I thought i'd ignore this and just opened up my NERO burning and put on the songs I wanted to record. Then, when I pressed the burn button, a message appeared telling me to insert a disc. WHAT? I had in in there I got frustarted, and just thought I'd put in a couple of my video game discs to see if it's my computer acting weird or is it just the CD's fault. And guess what? My computer didn't read any of the discs!
Now, I was angry and confused, so I just sat down and thought for a minute. Then, I remembered a couple of weeks, mabie even months ago, my sister and my little nephew visited me. I remember putting his car chair (not sure how to call it >.<) Next to my computer, and when he climbed onto the chair, I remember the chair pusshing down the button that opens up the cd drive. The chair didn't allow it to open, and when I noticed it, I quickly moved the cahir aside, but when I did, the cd drive stop trying to open (I guess the chair was blocking it for too long). I just tried opening and closing the drive to make sure it was OK. It was working. But I didn't put in any CD to make sure... Now while the drive DOE S open and close, it won't read any CDS. is it possible it broke during that event? How do I check? Thank you for taking the time to read this.
