I'm a newbie myself and so I'm probably not qualified to say anything about this (I've had no CD/DVD drive issues so I've not learnt abou them yet) but I noticed that your post has been looked at a few times without a reply.

If I could make a little suggestion: Ppl here tend to want/need a bit more information to answer questions, such as your distro and maybe the manufacturer/model of your DVD drive. just a suggestion. I for one have no freaking idea why your drive suddenly stopped working. the only thing i can think of is a driver issue/firmware... but that's the windows part of me talking. i'm not very good with linux hardware.

BTW: good move changing the subject from "computer trouble" to something a bit more specific.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
