Question about MSI (MS-P8148-050) (MSP8148050) CD-ROM Drive
Can anyone shed some light as to why my cd/dvd drive that was working wonderfully as I transfered cd's onto Itunes suddenly burned out. The drive wants to work however; can't follow through it makes all of right sounds, and lights up when the cd is incerted, tries and tries, gets hot and then quits. It's a Dell and they said that I have to install a new drive...the laptop is only 5 months old. I'm fine with the fact that it has to be replaced however, what can I do to prevent this from happening..I take amazing care to the computer and can't understand what I did to make this happen so suddenly. Oh, I have already checked the cd was not damaged that I was loading.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
If it is 5 months old, get it replaced from Dell. Dell's laptop CD/DVD drives are a cinch to replace. Just a couple screws if I remember correctly.
I had the same thing happen to an Averatec AV3715-EH1 notebook, but it was well out of warranty. Had to buy a new DVD burner drive.
