    Sunday I was burning a CD, when it got to 67% it started making a static type noise I could also ear it in my speakers when they were on. And I noticed the percentage was not going up and I could hear if the buner was working.

    So I rebouted my competer and now my burner will not read any of my cds. when I put in a music cd, I see the light go on for a bit then turn off, so I try and play some songs but I cant see the songs,after that the light on the burner keeps flashing.

    I bought my computer in Dec of 2003 and never had a problem till now and I dont burn that many cds, the burner is a 52x24x52 not sure about company, it doesnt show on the cover, and my computer is a Pentium 4 Celeron 2.4 Ghz, 256 MB of RAM and an 80 GB HDD.

    What can I do?

    Have you tried the drive in another PC?

    No I can't do that, because I only have one pc.

    When I go to Control Panel then System and in the Device Manager it can still see my burner and it's not saying that there's a problem.

    I am not very good when it comes to hardware problems, what could be the problem?

    When I have a cd in my burner it will try to read it then the light will turn off and a few seconds later the light starts flashing and wont stop until I take the cd out. Is there a way I can find out what’s wrong?

    Help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
