I have an Optorite DVDRW. Its been working really well for the past 9 months. Suddenly it stop reading my CDRs and not able to write to it as well. Reads and writes DVD no problem. I have tried using different media with the same result. I normally use Memorex which has been perfect till now. Any ideas? Thanks. BTW, I have also changed the Ide cable to no avail.

Could it be that the laser head for CD work is just plain dirty and needs a clean?

hi, thanks for reply. Its not as I have just tried it using Nero and it works but it will not recognise the media when I tried to burn usinf XP utility. The one that says "you got files waiting to be written". When I click next, the dialogue box asks me to insert a writable medium, which I have done. Any further ideas?
