hi all, I was wondering if somebody could help me with my problem... I got a brand new custom gaming computer from ibuypower.com and I don't know why but within a month I'd say the DVD-RW rom drive has been acting strange it reads little to few CD's or I'm not sure if it can read DVD's anymore, all my burn processes fail. When I put the DVD windows recovery CD in the drive has a clicking sound along with a buzzing sound, almost sounds like a fly is caught inside my drive to put it in details. It's really bothering me, I don't know if some how some important system data was changed from a virus, or I might've changed something I don't know. But if anyone knows any ways of diagnosing the problem and how to fix this would be wonderful! Thank you very much!

It's definately not driver based, you must have just got a defective DVD Drive. Tell the people you bought it from and ask for a replacement, see if the problem continues.

Ohh yeah, I'm afraid you're right. Thanks Sam. Guess I'll call them up for a replacement.
