Hello,

i bought an ASUS G1Sn-B1 laptop last August, it has Vista x64, and about 3 months ago my Blu-ray/disc drive stopped working, but not quite. As i type, Nero is burning a CD using the drive, but when i go to My Computer, i don't see the drive. the drive opens fine, and the discs spin when i put them in, but nothing happens on the computer. it's annoying because i can't play any games or anything that requires a disc drive, but for some reason, Nero still has the drive on it's list, and it still burns discs.

so, when i put a disc in, the light comes on, and i can hear the disc spinning, but eventually it stops, with absolutly nothing occuring on my desktop. i can't go to my computer and open it there because the drive isn't there! aaarg.

What can i do? in device manager, i see it, and it says that it is working properly, and i updated the drivers for it, but still no luck...

i took a picture of my screen with more info, you can see it here:

Hi I have a LG Super Multi DVD Drive Model GSA-41678 on XP, suddenly it stopped recognizing my blank DVD’s and CD’s when you put a blank disk XP ask you what you want to do with it that no longer appears. I’m using Nero which also which also doesn’t recognize my blanks.
I bought a DVD cleaner – no good
Formatted my XP –problems still continues.
Bought a new DVD burner and still there.
The truth is that I’ve never seen this problem and I’m stuck can anyone give a real solution.
Thanks
