When I put a data CD into this drive it does not open up. The Green Light on the Drive keeps Flashing then stops for a few moments then starts flashing again and nothing happens. When I Click the Drive in My Computer the screen freezes and the Hour Glass is constantly there. But it does work with Audio CDs.
I think you mean windows opening (option to burn with nero/autorun empty cd /burn movie -power producer/etc /take no action .
If so cancel that then go straight into my computer or explorer see if any files are waiting to be written to the drive? if there are delete them . go now into nero wizard & set-up for a data disc check configuration & from there to test the burner
Seagate software CD that opened up .I asume this is the dvd/cd drive your refering to ...if so that indicates niether the cd/dvd read lasers are at fault! however carry out my posting ,maybe a software / resorces issue
That Seagate CD is for the Seagate External hard drive. I tried it out in the DVD/CD drive in question. I've just tried playing a DVD, yes and it played, I ran the DVD for about 15 mins. I also played a audio CD again & that too played Okay.
That particular CD in question that didn't work prompted me to get on the Forum. Its a Web Design CD & may be that is faulty. If all else works. Its a brand new CD. Thank goodness my LG 16X Multi DVD/CD Rewriter seems okay now. I bought it at a discount 1/2 price from PC World.
Any way thanks very much for all the HELP. At least my minds at rest now.
Sorry if I have put you to any trouble. Thanks for your time.
