I think my E: (CDRW) drive is faulty. When I put a disk in there was a grinding sound as it attempts to start. I have never heard this before. Could it be anything less than a failed drive? When I click properties it says they drive is working. Machine is an old Dell 863Mhz w/ 256K ram.
The drive is LG CD-RW CED-8080B
My question is: I want to replace this inexpensively as possible. What options do I have? Do I have to know what physical size?
