DVD ROM problems

  1. I have a Pacific Digital 16X DVD ROM IDE internal drive. I have only used
    it about 30 times. I have had it for a few years. The problem is that it
    can read CD's fine but says insert disk when you try and read a DVD. I am
    running XP. Pacific Digital says it might be broken. Can a drive break
    like this? Where it can read a CD but not a DVD?

    Thanks
    Russ
     
  2. Hi!
    That's the first problem, but it won't make your drive fail to work.
    Yes, a drive can break like that. When two lasers are used, it is possible
    for one of them to fail.
