  balmad 21:30 31 Jul 2004

I have windows xp home edition. Its cd rewriter stopped working although only used it couple of times.There is busy light in front of it but there is no CD init. It also doesnot open by pressing the front button but i managed to open it with the wire in little hole on the front.Any ideas please to rectify.

Take the side off the computer and check that the data (ribbon) cable between the mother board and CD device is firmly plugged in at both ends.
