Went to burn a disc last night and straight away it failed.

Now no discs are recognised and SiSoft Sandra cannot obtain drive information. I tried a reboot, nothing. Not disabled the drive in the BIOS or unplugged it or anything. It just stopped working.

I think it has died, which annoys me since the thing is only 6 months old.

Anyone got any other ideas.

It does sound like its died, check to see if the manufacturer will replace it as its more than a couple of months old I doubt Overclockers would replace it straight from their stock

Should be, but I can't find anything other than the box and the Overclockers UK invoice.

I was going to open up the PC soon anyway to tidy up the wires and fit some more case fans, I'll check all the wires then. But there is still power to the drive.

I tend to think the $%^&* just died.

Is it not still under warranty?

If it's internal, make sure all the cables are properly plugged in - sometimes the slightest movement of the case can pop a cable out enough to disconnect it.
