I have a Samsung laptop and when I turn it on the Optical drive makes a noise that it's turning on, but not the usual reading/turning noises.
When I try to use it, a CD game won't load- 'cannot find disc' and DVD's bring up error messages.
I've uninstalled the drive so it re-installs, cleaned the laser-reader thing and the drive and check that it's listed on my laptop components. I've also done a deep virus/malware scan (Bitdefender)
I did get a blue screen of death about a day or two before this happened which may have some connection...?
Does anyone know what might be the problem or is it just 'RIP' for my drive?
Many, many Thanks in advance!
