I was given a cube a few weeks ago. This week I found out I cannot insert a cd in its dvd player. I also found out the machine does not even know it has a dvd player to begin with. So, I decided to open the guy and take a look. The said
drive has a cd in it but does not seem to be doing much with it. What can I do to persuade both to play together? I am taking the drive to work today because they have usb->IDE cables and plan on using it on a linux box (or even a XP one! We do not have Macs at work) and see if they can see the drive. But, other than that, time for another drive?
QUOTE Thanks
