Question about Compaq Laptop / Notebook Video-336970-001 (336970001) CD-ROM Drive
I think that it stopped spinning. The Laptop recognizes it is there and has the correct drivers but it states that the "drive is not ready" for any and all attempts to access it. Can you tell me how to repair this myself or is it a lost cause?
This sounds similar to what happened to my compaq. They sent me a new drive since it was shot after only a couple months. You can download Belarc diagnostic software and send them the results to see what they say - you should find it on their website.
