DVD Drive trouble!
I wanted to resort to this forum before I jumped the gun and bought a new dvd burner. Okay, my dvd burner is dead. I don't really know how I killed it. I was experimenting with new memory I'd just received so I had to remove the drive in order to install the memory. Somehow, I either left the power cable in without the IDE cable or vice versa while the system was still running (stupid move, I know) and then poof! My system just dies on me. Then, I remove the power cable from the mainboard and plug it back in and my system works fine again but my DVD burner doesn't work and yes, I have been trying to get it to work for hours now. Does anyone know why this happened? Or, more importantly, what to do about it? I'd appreciate any help.
