    I am running Win98 and I have an A-Open 40x12x48x cd rewriter and it has suddenly stopped working. When you put a cd in the light flashes on and off with a brief pause about three times and then starts flashing rapidly. I get the error message that the drive is inaccessible. What can I do as I cannot access any repair software or diagnostics.

    1. The drive might actually be fried
    2. Can you access the drive in DOS? (this would help to eliminate the possibility of a Windows problem which can then be solved by a reformat)

    No, I am unable to access the drive from DOS.

    1. Check that the cds you are trying to test are actually good.

    2. Uninstall the drive in windows and let it reboot to try and reinstall it.

    3. Try a new firmware for the drive.

    4. If you have another computer available or a friend's, try the drive in that machine

    5. I suspect this is the case, the drive is toasted :(
