Question about Dell Dimension 4700 PC Desktop
When a cd is placed in drive it spins and green operating light flashes very fast, after maybe a minute or two the light goes out but nothing is read.
The drive is recognised on Device Manager. This happens with all cd's placed in the drive whether they be data, music etc.
The CD Drive has probably gone bad. You will have to buy a replacement drive. I recommend newegg.com. The price will be about 30$ for a DVD burner. If you want just a DVD player or CD Burner then it will be even cheaper. Dell provides a very easy to read step by step guide with pictures on replacing your drive here:
Hope this helped!
