    welcome to TSG, froggps

    is the drive seen in Windows?
    which version of Windows do you use?
    didn't happen to mess with any cd burning programs since it stoped working?

    I think you need to clean the lense of your CD Drive. There are tool kits available in markets to do this. Buy it and do as directed in their instruction sheets. It should be fine soon. All the best. :D

    for AR5CRASH, try going to device manager, double click each of your cd drives and uncheck DMA Share. Worked for me under Win98SE.
