    Hi,
    I hope someone can help last night i closed my comp
    normally with no probs and when i turned it on today
    it started opening and closing and the busy light was
    on when i started to get into windows so i restarted and it did the same thing so went into bios and left it
    for 10 minutes and it was ok so removed the drive and did a virus scan which was ok went into device manager
    and removed it also changed cable and restarted and
    it did the same thing went back to dev man and no
    conflicts so swapped with dvd, same thing.
    anyone have any ideas or should I buy a dvdrw and bin
    the cdrw.

    Yeah its an artec wrr 4048
    I think you're right
    I've just checked on www.ebuyer.com
    and theres a Pioneer 8x DVD DUAL R/RW
    IDE Burner for £57.95 inc vat and delivery
    which i think i'll get.
    I've never checked prices online before
    how long has it been this cheap?

    I'm across the pond and thus not so familiar with prices there .... but yes, the new 8X burners have been cheaper than expected
