My asus varidrive wont take in cds

I bought an Asus varidrive about 6 months ago, it used to work just fine. But I just tried to use it and its not working. When I plug it in the computer does recognize that I pluged something, but when I try to insert a cd or dvd the external drive wont take it in. Any ideas as to what I should do?

Does the drive accept the disk then spit it out or does it never close the door?

SOURCE: I have a Asus computer and my cd/dvd rw stop working. I can't watch dvd's or listen to any cd's I need to know what's up with my cd/dvd multi-recorder

First try a system restore back to the last date which you remember that it worked. If that doesnt help, you must find out what cd/dvd burning software is in your computer. It may have been corrupted. Oddly enough, you don't need drivers for the CD/DVD drives. They aren't even recognized unless you have a good non-microsoft burning program. Find out what burning software you have--download Belarc Advisor, a free program (Google it) which not only tells you everything in your computer, with model and serial numbers for hardware and all of your software (with their unique codes), but will also inform you if you are missing any needed Windows updates. Once you know what you have, if it came with the computer, you have to seek an upgrade at the computer manufacturer's website, as it may be a special program not related to the burning software purchased from the software manufacturer---go to their website for upgrades.

Try installing the drivers from Asus for your EXACT model of computer. Many of Microsoft's drivers are generic in nature and do not take advantage of the hardware installed by manufacturers because they can't always "talk" to their hardware.

Go to Asus's web site, type in your model number under the "Download Drivers" section and it will take you to a page where you can find the specific driver for your drive and hopefully get it back to seeing both CDs and DVDs.

Had the same problem on Mac.
Solution: You need to connect device to machine on Linux and give it "eject" command.
Do not to connect device to Windows machine. I was trying to burn cd on Mac. Then it was interrupted in the middle of burning (some files were missing). When I connected drive to Win it tryed to unsuccessfully read it and eventually explorer.exe crushed. And it will not resolve until you reboot the machine.

Hello.

Since you have experienced so many problems with your new computer, and your backup and restore disks don't work, return your computer to the place where you purchased or to Asus, depending on the store policy.

Your operating system (Windows 7 ?) is faulty and should be reinstalled or your hard drive or other hardware component is faulty. Either way, return for a replacement.

Hope this helps.
