Hello
My drive HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GCA-4166B was working fine so far, until it stopped reading or burning cds and dvds. If I insert a media, it tries to read it then stops after a few blinks, and if I click on the drive icon, it opens to a blank screen in Windows.
Device manager says that the drive is working properly, and I did an update on its driver but nothing so far.
Anyone can help troubleshoot this problem?

Optical drives don't last forever. It's time for a new one I'd say!

Unfortunately I think you are right, will get one soon to replace it
