I took my PC to Best Buy Tonight and Explained that the CD/DVD Burner has quit working. The poked and prodded and wasted a CD-R to verify it was barfing when you tried to burn a CD. Then he said do you want us to replace it? I said "yeah that was the idea". He then proceeds to tell me they don't make these CD/DVD burners anymore so he will have to replace it with a FASTER one! WOO HOO. I will now have a 8xDVD burner instead of a 2x. In addition it burns both DVD-R and DVD+R. I should have it back tommorrow.
The bad news is he thinks he is going to have to reformat it to fix the other problem. It wont recognize the network card or the new USB 2.0 card I put in it.
Well it will hold me over till I save enough money to buy a new one.
