  1. Hi all!
    I have a problem here.
    My cdrom driver (LG 48X) simply stopped to work. Then I bought a new driver (LG 52X). Few hours of using it stopped to work too.
    It appears to be a power supply problem But I tried to plug the drivers in other machines (didn't worked). The read led doesnt bright and the drive door doesnt open.
    What could be the cause of this annoying problem?
    ATX font? IDE cable? Mobo?
    The most curious is that in the same IDE flat cable there is a CDrW driver working fine.
    Maybe the power supply cable?
    please help me!

    Check if the wires in the power connector are not the wrong way around.
