Hi Please please help, it's driving me nuts. I have a packrd bell imedia 6200 with a samsung cdrw/dvd sm 308b which will not recognise any disks at all. when I check the device status it says that the device is working properly. I have reinstalled it, downloaded up to date firmware for it. Help. aaaargh...

How old is the drive??

When did this start??

Did it ever read Disk??

Have you installed anything onto the PC before this happened??

Give us some more info to be able to help..

What happened when it stopped working ?

Have you re-installed the software for it ? could be the problem.

Have you installed any new programs that may have over wrote some software files ?

How old is it ? could have died of old age.

Is it under Guarantee ?

Hi, it's only 2.5 years old.

Haven't installed any programs that may affect it.

Nothing happened when it stopped working, it just stopped working.

Used to work fine.

I have reinstalled it twice over the weekend.

Any ideas???

Sorry mate but with all your answers, i would say its cream crackered, time to dig down into your pocket.....When they go they just go, and if its been used a lot for 2.5 years....
