TssTcorp CD/DVD SH-182D drive will not playback music cd's

  1. I can't remember the last time I was able to playback audio cd's (store bought) but I am sure I was able to at one time. I'll insert a cd into the drive at the autoplay box does popup saying it is an audio cd, so the drive WILL recognize the disc. However upon attempting to playback or rip, the drive will endlessly try to read the disc, freezing whichever program I'm using to playback/rip. The hard disc action light is also at full blast while this is happening. I have tried several cds and programs to no avail.

    The Drive itself requires replacing
    You can also purchase cleaning discs to clean the laser, but the money is usually best spent on a new DVD R/W drive

    I should also mention that other discs (DVD Movies, Data Cds, Game CD/DVDS) play without a hitch.
