It started out that neither my cd rom or burner drives were working, after days of searching for answers the cd rom is now working but I cant get the burner drive to work. I have been all though your archives related to this topic and tried things others have posted, everything appears to be fine, no yellow excalmations, computer shows the drive, but when you put a disk in the light comes on for a sec, then off again, nothing happens after that. When I go to my computer and try double click on the drive it keeps saying drive not ready. Any suggestions?
TIA

im far from an expert but.......

i had this problem i used to insert the cd and when the light came on i ejected it than closed it again (it took a couple of times but it did eventualy work) after getting pretty sick of doing that i opened up my pc pulled out the burner and gave it dam good shake and a slight tap (i get frustrated easily) then i check the plugs ect..and also the jumper at this point it seemed to be a bit crooked so i put it back in and fare enough it worked once more. for a while any way

I've had a problem like that before as well, it was when i was running windows 98.  Upgrade to a newer operating system.  Thats what I did.  But I'd call that a last resort.  First check IDE and Power cables.  Try booting with a startdisk with CD rom support, see if you can access your CDRW from Dos.  Maybe switch the IDE around if its on cable select.... ok... coffee is ready.... gotta go ... good luck

Hi,

Any new software/hardware installed before this problem started?
What did you do to get the cdrom working?
Did you try reading original cds?
Have you scanned for a virus with an up to date viruscan? Try http://housecall.trendmicro.com for a free online scan
