DVD-RW Drive Problem

  RobCharles1981 19:02 11 Jan 2010

This has been going on for a couple of days now.

Sometimes it shows itself in "My Computer" then after a while it vanishes.

I'm thinking its either the Sata Data Cable or the Drive.

I tried pluggin the Data cable onto another port but the problem still remains.

Any Suggestions?

Try a different cable.

If a different data cable doesn't work, try another power cable from the PSU. G

Trying out a different Sata Cable its not that, I will look at a different Power Cable if that fails it sounds like the Drive is playing up.

I think the Drive is Dodgy.

That didn't help looks like the Sata Power Cable was abit iffy I found a Sata to Molex Power Connector and so far no problems.
