basically i was installing a game when it just stopped reading the disc. after several wipes of the disc and putting it in and out a few times it still wasn't reading so i cancelled the installation and tryed another cd which again it wouldn't read. the 'my computer' screen won't even load up with a cd in the drive either now, although sometimes it does after a long time but no disc is found.

it's on xp.

please help!

It's on it's way to CD Drive heaven by the sounds of it. :(

Pretty cheap & easy to replace though. :) (y)

Only got one drive? School boy error!

Get a loan of one, try it in the same bay, same issues then something else awry if it works then bin the other, not worth faffing with.
