FYI, 48x16x48 means 48x write, 16x rewrite, 48x read. If you use RW discs you will be limited to 16x.

Buy a new drive. That one is old and slow anyway.
That's real useful advice. :rolleyes: There's nothing wrong with the spec's of the drive, perhaps we should just try to help him get it running.

turn your pc off, then unplug it

then disconnext the ide cable to the drive then plug the pc back in then startup

then shut down again, then unplug, then reconnect the ide cable

and see if it helps
