Could be that your laser lens is dirty. Take a foam stick , one end little wet with water, gently go over the lens of the drive, adn with another dry end again remove any dust or humidity. Then try, and if doesn't work it is probably a drive failure.

Well CD/DVD drives tend to get dirty and just wear out..Maybe you'll have to visit the shop sad.gif

Once you've cleaned the lens it might be worth running a checksum as well Mark. Nothing worse then burning cds only to find that the data is corrupted/unreadable due to checksum errors.

If the cd is knackered then like Bogdan says - time for a new one! Least they're pretty cheap and v easy to install smile.gif .

Thanks for commenting smile.gif

Well I cleaned it, not that it was really neccessary because it's a new laptop ( like 5 weeks old ) and I only used the CD driver a few times. It still doesnt work. So I think I'm gona take it back to the PC store tongue.gif

If its under the warranty thats the best option for sure..Maybe some cables got disconnected or something wink.gif
I don't believe its a software issue though..
Ivan Milenkovic
If it's new then its a defintely a hardware failure. Take it to shop, they should fix it no problem! smile.gif

Maybe get an external USB 2 or Firewire cd drive - USB2 externals start at less then 20Euros smile.gif .

My CD Drive failed on me also in the same way. It's just what they do. They have a burn out but fortunately they are very cheap to replace.
