As title says, it won't. It's more of a generic drive, manufactured in China, it came with my barebones set, which I bought from geeks.com
Haalpz please?

I did the other drive worked. But that one wasn't mine. The cables are all good and the drive detects cds and can burn them, just not dvds.

im in the same boat as ninjaway - my drive just stopped working - kinda makes a weird butt noise trying to load discs

Right, thats the exact same thing I get. I'm probably gonna buy a sata dual layer drive next, they run for about 30 Dollars, and they're faster than these cheap generic versions, I'll probably find one by Samsung.

I doubt it's the cable, and I can't find drivers.

It's most likely your laser then, because I'm in the same situation as you are.
Do you know if you wrap a piece of paper round your PS2 laser you can play games that usually need the console to be chipped.

Do you know the laser is what reads the information from the disk? How exactly are you going to read a CD when the thing which reads it has been covered?


As with these Cd / DVD drives, like i said, try them on another computer and if it doesn't work, its dead. They do go dead quite easily, especially if you are regularly writing CD's / DVD's at max speed (which you should never do due to data corruption).
