CD-R drive packing up

  astronomer2 12:20 04 Jul 03

My 3-year-old computer's CD-R drive has stopped recognising when a CD is inserted. It just sits their blinking its little orange light at me but making no attempt to spin. Is this the end of the road for it? Do I need to buy a new drive or could it be something else, perhaps a software driver glitch? My secondary CD-R/W drive still works OK.

Try getting the latest update from Nero, or whoever. Similar thing happened to me when the 'Choose recorder' box was empty. I either resolved it by re-installing Nero from the CD or by getting an update from the Nero site.
