Lite-on CD RW stopped working - won't recognize disk
Posted on 2007-03-28
I've been backing up stuff to my CD-RW. I just drag & drop thru Windows Explorer with no problem. Suddenly, it has stopped working. When I put a CD in (I've tried MANY CD-Rs & CD-RWs), the drive will flash, but nothing happens. When I try to copy stuff over, I get a "please insert writeable CD.." I tried putting a regular software CD in the CD-RW drive to see what happens & nothing shows on Explorer. I click the drive & there's nothing there, no errors. Is it possible that it just died? It was $20 about 4 years ago.
