Default Optical drive problem

I have an Asus CRW- 522A, that repeatedly ejects once i switch on the computer. When it ejects, i reinsert it, and it reejects over and over. If i insert any cd in, it stops ejecting, and a yellow and a red flash alternates on the drive LED.
If i manage to start the windows, the drive is not detected.

I tried the drive in another motherboard, intel 965, but the ejecting problem at computer start wont allow the motherboard to boot.:freak:

I think i need to reflash the drive, or is it a hardware problem?
obviously i cant flash the drive without bein detected. I'd appreciate ur opinions all, thnx 4 ur time readin this:happy:

Default Re: Optical drive problem

possibly you can try a new ribbon cable. if that doesnt work then it sounds like you need to replace the drive.
