alright heres another one...i have an LG combo drive, which has been giving me quite a few problems recently...at times it can read a CD, at times it can't. also there are problems with writing on CD-RWs. most of them cant be read after they have been burned, not even on other drives. reading DVDs is not a problem. that the drive can handle pretty well. someone told me there have been quite a few complaints against LG combo drives. is anyone else out here(with the same drive) facing similar problems?
