Hey guys. I’ve been having major problems with my current DVD drive and I was wondering if you guys had any ideas on how to fix it.
Is hit-and-miss on playing CDs. (Works sometimes, other times you have to take the CD out and reinsert it to get it to work)
Will hardly ever play DVD movies.
When booting Knoppix Live CDs and DVDs it gives me errors about the disks (Which I had tried previously without any errors whatsoever.) something about missing files. (I know my discs are okay b/c I used them to install Knoppix on a different PC.)
I’m running Windows XP, AMD Athlon 3000 + Barton, 1 GB PC-3200 Kingston RAM, 80 GB WD HD, Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS Gamer, and of course this Sony DVD drive.
I’ve tried different IDE cables without success.
Any ideas? My thoughts are it’s either the DVD drive or my motherboard. :-?
Thanks in advance.
