    Most optical drives only last a year. Heavily used ones can wear out in six months. It may be time ro replace it... Shopping around, you can find good Samsung, LG, LiteOn, and Pioneer for as low as $22 to $24 plus tax and shipping.

    You must be running Vista or Win 7? Try unzipping to your Desktop then just drag the file from your Desktop to that folder and tell Windows it's OK when it asks

    The computers we see in our four shops with this condition most frequently have optical drives, either CDRW or DVDRW that are too badly worn, or have had way too much use.
    And it is cheaper to replace them than to repair them
