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

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!
