    Hi I have two drives in my computer:

    LiteON DVD Burner
    LG DVD Combo drive

    Both are fairly new, and they were working perfectly up until a few hours ago. When i first turn on my computer the drives can read and burn cds/dvds without any problems. However when i leave my computer for a couple of hours, and come back to and try to install something of a cd, the drive won't read anymore. I have tried to reinstall windows and that worked until i restarted my computer, i have updated the bios, i have tried other cd/dvd drives, and they all produce the same results. This problem is really starting to bug me, so does anyone have nay suggestions as to what i can do to fix this problem?

    Thanks in advance,
    Kaashif Vandal

    I would install Speedfan and watch the temps on hard drives and system.

    I also wonder about power supply too especially since you don't list it in your specs.

    Thanks, i will check out the program. My system specs are as follows:


    Asus P4P800-E Deluxe
    Intel P4 E 3.0GHZ HT
    1.5GB RAM
    128MB MSI Geforce FX5900XT Video Card
    Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Platinum Sound Card
    1 x IDE 160GB HD
    1 x IDE 80GB HD
    1 x External SATA 80GB HD
    500W Thermaltake Power Supply

    Overall my CPU temerature is steady at about 40 degrees, and my motherboard temp is around 30 degrees. I am using a Kingwin AS3000 watercooler and its installed in a Sunbeam Transformer case. Airflow through the case is good, so temperature/power i believe is not a problem!

    Power supply I'm sure is fine. I'll bet it's the hard drives.
