I came home for spring break yesterday, and my computer (Dell Dimension 4500) burner which hasn't been used in over three months has stopped working. I've tried numerous blank and regular CD's, yet it still does not read anything. anytime i put a cd in, the led light flashes for a few seconds and then stops. When i try to run the drive it says "the request could not be performed becuase of an I/O device error" When i check the device manager under DVD/CD-ROM drives, no errors show. these are the drives that i have
Lite-on LTN486S 48x Max
Samsung CD-R/RW SW-240B
Hopefully thats enough info to diagnos this, any help is apprecitated.
