Question CD-ROM/Burner spins but stops

sponsored links
I'm a bit hardware ignorant so please forgive my lack of terminology. (More of a software person. )

I have this CD-ROM/burner: HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8400B

Okay, so it spins for anywhere from five to thirty seconds then stops. Nothing prompted this to start. No download, no power outage, no lightning storm. No getting p*ssed off and tossing my computer. At first, every twenty or so times trying to get the thing to work, it would eventually read a disc. Now, it never does.

I've gone through the whole deleting the drive and rebooting. MANY times. It doesn't work.

Any ideas as to what's going on (in as simple of terms as you can put it, I'll understand a lot of what you mean but not everything technical, sorry) and what I can perhaps do to fix this? I'm low on money so buying a new one isn't an immediate option. But I have a feeling I'm going to have to just wait and get a new one.

Thanks in advance!

The best thing is to try the drive in another comp, if it still acts the same, its faulty and will need replacing.
