By any chance do you have a Dell computer? I have a Dell Dimension 4600 with a seperate DVD and Burning Disc drives. The DVD one doesn't do anything also. I've tried reinstalling it and I even talked to Dell about it. They told me it was dead and I would need to get a new drive. Luckily it's still under warrenty. ;-D

let this be a lesson to all you out there considering dell computers. purchase the warranties!!!!! and call me, i can help you. i get commissions too. PM me if you want my extension. :-]

Not to get off the topic of the post but after 2 years my FREE 17" Flat Panel upgrade screen just stopped working. I got a new one though for free, no shipping charges either.

Someone I work with just bought a new PC, and his DVD drive/burner doesn't work either. It was a Dell. I'm pretty sure he's going to have to get a new drive.

Maybe there's a bad batch of drives out there?? :-P

I bought my computer about 2-3 years ago.

do you really work for Dell? i want to buy a laptop in a few months, but i'm not getting the warranty (well, maybe depending on how expensive it is vs the laptop)

i had to tell a Best Buy associate 7 times i didnt want the warranty on an iPod.

...and they tried selling me one on a $30 toaster over once :*)

I do have a Dell. That's pretty odd that your DVD drive doesn't work either. Anyway, I'm sure the drive is broken, and luckily my uncle has a DVD drive and he's going to install it for me. Thanks for the help guys. ;-D
