    Hi,

    I'm having problems with my LG CD RW drive. Whenever I put a CD into it, it takes ages to read it and mostly crashes the system. Then when I come to take the disc out, during a restart, it's still spinning really fast.

    It also stops burning at 3% during the writing of the Lead In tracks.

    Any idea's or is the drive shot?
