Try it in differenf usb port
or if you can, try in another pc.
If that dont work, you can take the drive out of the enclosure and try and fit it internally into a computer
if thats not possible, you can buy new enlosures quite cheap to fit the drive into
spacer, since not all harddrives have exactly identical dimensions and replacement may differ. The manufacturers of the laptop to ensure that all would fit makes the space big enough for the biggest and insert spacer to compensate with the slightly smaller models;
heat shield, as the name implies puts a stop gap between the physical closeness of two heat sources so as not to contribute to the temp of the other, hard disk and motherboard/casing.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
Assuming this means the CD drive rather than the Hard Drive (which doesn't normally have a link to the outside world).......
Unless something from outside is very obviously fouling the door, the problem is probably internal to the drive. With the price of replacement drives these days (shockingly low), I wouldn't even bother opening the drive to investigate what's wrong - I'd just put a new (probably higher spec) one in.
They're all a standard size and fitting and fitting a replacement is a "no surprises" job.
