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.

Had the same problem at first. The disk must be burned using an "ISO Image"....if you're using Windows Vista, it uses a different format. Google "Free ISO Image Burner" and download one of the free ISO image burners, if you don't have one. Burn the firmware file you downloaded to a CD as an ISO Image, and it should work.
if you are using itunes and you have a cd burner on the laptop...you just pick approx 10-15 tracks from itunes (it also depends on how big the mp3/4 tracks are) place your correct (cd +/-, 16x or 8x) type of blank cd in laptop and burn ...
your DVD ROM lens has became weak. and it cannot be repaired. But
if you manage to open the DVD ROM clean the dust in it & it will
start working again but be careful remember that no power should be
attached to ROM. or you can buy a lens cleaner from market and try that. pls rate my solution thankyou
Your CD Drive may be just a CD/DVD reader Drive may not be able to burn onto CD/DVD,s my dads laptop cant, he gets same error when he trys, so he had to use a different cd/dvd burner on a desktop.
If you have a desktop or laptop and you are 100% sure it can burn to CD/DVD,s then i reccomend you get a program called "ULTRA ISO" it is shareware but allows burning up to 300mb per cd for free before it asks you to pay so as long as you keep cd files below a total of 300mb you,d never have to pay. if its actually ITUNES which is reporting the error then your CD/DVD drive may require its own software before itunes will reconise it as CD/DVD burner drive. windows media player can report this type of error also.
I believe that Itunes is only compatible with the Ipods.........however, there is a workaround. You need to burn the itunes downloads to a CD, then rip the CD back into an MP3 compatible music program. I'm attempting this as I type.........I burned the itunes songs onto a cd, and then ripped them into Yahoo Jukebox. One sec, and I'll let you know if it worked.
