Question about LaCie 8x DVD+/-RW USB 2.0 External Dual Layer Drive with LightScribe (300820U) DVD Drive
Well the subject just about says it all, my Lacie DVD Player/Burner is not turning on at all. I have it plugged into the wall and hooked up to the computer through USB. It used to work a few months ago but now it just dosn't turn on. I don't know what to do. Is there a way to open it up and see if there is any problems inside of the drive that may be prevening it from powering up? I hope I don't have to get a new drive. I don't think I am in warranty anymore. Thank you very much in advance for any help you may be able to provide. -Ken-
What is the exact model numbers? maybe the power supply went bad and you may be able to use the device internally.
