it only opens and closes, so i know all is not lost " hopefully"

there are no error message in the device manager. system & device stats say everything is in working order. i even did a full destructive restore on this thing, then after that,
i deleted the dvdw driver from my pc and restarted my system, & still nothing to indicate that there is a problem with it.

If you go looking on the net you will find theres a lot of people that have problems with that drive. ClubCD freaks has extended information on it.


Personally i would not give it another change and would buy a NEC 18X dvd burner for $30 and be done with it.
