Hi Guys thanks for your replys but!!
I have just formatted the laptop (only 5 months old) put on every thing
Before putting on Nero tried the drive exactly the same.
Put on Nero 7 premium exactly the same.
And why would the original drive (freecom) be OK then just stop.
Any ideas the laptop is a Fujitsu AMILO Pro V2030. Also i have noticed
in the system hardware device manager, it used to in the disc drive section now its only a USB mass storage device.
