HELLO IM LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO HELP ME WITH MY DVD DRIVE PROBLEM,

PROBLEM = I have a JLMS XJ-HD 166S DVD ROM DRIVE WHICH HAS SUDDENLY CEASED TO READ ANY DVD`S OR CD`S.

MY OTHER CD ROM DRIVE IS WORKING PERFECTLY!

Are both drives on the same IDE cable? If not try swapping the cables. It could also be that the drive went bad. Can you put it in another computer to test?
