drive. This drive has become problematical when trying to read a disc it either will not recogognise that there is a disc in the drawer and gives the message "please insert a disc into drive "x" ", or sometimes it will open the disc in 'folder option' it will not auto run, most of the time it gives the 'please insert etc.', message. I have updated the Firmware but this has not solved the problem. I have a back-up, fresh installed version of Windows XP Pro and I get the same problem when I run this. Is my drive needing to be replaced?, can someone please advise me.
