Residual DVD Drive Issues- from trying Windows 10

Recommended Posts

I agree with Waco 100%.  There isn't any way that the OS could have caused a short circuit or voltage spike that would have damaged your thumb drive or your DVD burner.  It just isn't possible.

 

I can understand a driver compatibility issue with your DVD burner not reading or detecting media, but everything else has got to be coincidental.  As for the DVD burner itself, they are so inexpensive now if it were me I'd toss it and just buy another.

 

Not sure where you're at, but here in the States you can buy a very good DVD burner for right at $20.

Seems I might have to. Due to family issues, $20 is harder to squeeze out than you'r think: Had to finangle quite a bit to set aside for my i7. But I guess $20 extra won't kill me. I've been checking all over and it seems nothing is getting this thing back to functionality.

 

Well, I don't know how to close this thread, so I'll see if I can edit the title to solved or something, because it seems just buying a new one is my only option.

Before you do anything I'd put a multi meter on your psu cables and main mb connector and see if it's overvolting the usb ports or dvd burner. NO WAY a data disk or data flash drive would do that, it has to be a voltage overload.

I have to agree with Spike, I would not do anything else before testing the voltage on your system. It really sounds like power stability causing your issues especially with the melting. I would start at the PSU and check the voltages for spikes. Might want to put your PSU also on a surge protector in case this is originating on your wall outlet.

Not as smart as you guys, but I'm looking at a faulty PSU or a faulty motherboard.

I had an unused 750 T/T that burnt out three hdd's before we concurred it was a firebox.

I also recently bought a new ASUIS DVD burner for $20 because the old one was 15 years old. It did glitch now and again.

If you can, I feel you should get you new gear and ditch stuff that may or may not be at fault.

Computers are rather weak to the effects of ummmm ...... glitches and stuff.
