CD/DVD combi drive strange reading problem.


Standard Member
Ok i have had these problems only with combi drives one two ocasions but never with seperate cd/dvd optical drives, I thought I would finnaly try finding out what the problem actually is.

What the problem is I can pop a dvd in the drive and play it and will work fine but if i stop playing it and play it again later 75% of the time it woulden't read the disk and start making strange noises.

Sometimes when I leave a dvd/ game in the drive I will open my computer and the funny noises start again and not load my hard drives untill i eject the disk and everything is hunky dorey. Same problem happens pausing a dvd the dvd seems to stop working untill I eject and reinsert the disk.

Anyone ever had these problems with combi drives I have had them on 2 different drives on 2 different pc's

Thanks for your time.
