Hello Tech Spot I have a gh22ns50 LG "super multi" DVD-RAM drive and last week it just suddenly stopped working. It's reasonably new, and when it stopped playing games, it could play audio CDs for a bit but now it's not reading anything. Nothing is showing up in My Computer when I put a disc in, though the drive shows up empty, and it takes hours of opening and closing the tray and trying to get games to run before they'll run (but yes, they'll get read and they'll run once the drive actually recognises them). The Device Manager says there's nothing wrong with it. I have tried the following: Upper and Lower filter removal (there weren't any) Disc cleaning System restore Antivirus/Adaware/Registry cleaning Computer cleaning (the thing was disgustingly dusty inside, I've now taken it off the floor) Firmware updates Driver updates of everything Uninstalling and reinstalling the drive I thought it could be a problem with SecureROM as my boyfriend has installed some of his games that have that, and I know that can be an issue, but my drive doesn't play anything, even things that don't have that software installed. I don't know if it matters but my drive has SecurDisc written on the front. (I'm not too hardware savvy, sorry) I could not find the jumpers on the drive to check what they were set to, I even removed the thing to look and I couldn't see anything, the cables were plugged in fine and the light flashes. I also don't know if this matters, but when I bought the computer four or so months ago, I removed Vista and installed XP instead. Google has failed me! Are you guys able to help?
