About one week ago, my CD RW Drive, wich had given me no problems before, suddenly stopped functioning properly. It was recognised by the computer, and showed up as drive E:, but it wouldn't recognize any CD's. One week later, my old DVD Drive is experiencing problems out of the blue, when it's been working perfectly for the last 5 years. It just stopped working a few minutes ago, freezing my computer. I restarted it, The computer didn't recognize the drive. I restarted it again, the Drive was recognized, but now the blasted thing dosn't want to eject properly, because the red light keeps on blinking. There is currently no disc in it, so I don't see why the red link would be blinking. Now I'm extremly scared to purchase that new DVD R drive, because I don't know what could make these drives suddenly act up like this.. Any ideas?
