CD drive not working...any thoughts?
    #1805946 - 08/12/03 04:03 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

It was working fine, playing a cd, then the next time I went to play one it wouldn't play it. I don't really know what to think. It's Windows XP with the Windows Media player...how might I troubleshoot this?

audio kable maybe loose, or power kable, or ribbon kable, unless you threw it on the ground and jumped on it, then i might just be fuked.

It's the one at work, I'll have a look in the morning; it opens ok, there is sound (like from online radio), but it doesn't even start to spin a disc when I put one in.

it may just be a old drive and the motor failed. still before you chuck it in the garbage do trouble shooting through windows

Thanks for the advice...just weird that it was fine and then crapped out so suddenly, maybe it doesn't like my taste in music.
