I recently got a Mad Dog dvd rom drive, and after spending too much time installing it at getting it to work, i noticed a problem when i loaded up a DVD, the sound was all crackly. Does anybody know how to fix this?

LiteOn SOHC 5236V CD/DVD ROM problems

In reply to: DVD-ROM drive problems

The drive will not recognize any type of CD, it makes a crackling sound and then stops, restarts, crackling again, stops, restarts, and the whole routine again for about 3 more times. Even when there is no CD inside, I check the properties of the drive and it shows no memory left (all blue, no pink left), but there is no CD inside!!! I updated the driver and no help, I uninstalled the CD/DVD hardware and restarted my computer, and no help. I have an Enpower with XP Media Center, AMD Athlon 64 Dual Core Processor 3800+. Any help anyone????

Latest motherboard drivers, CD/DVD drive firmware update and then a new drive?
