    Intermittent DVD Sony Optiarc BD ROM BC-5500S

    Good Day To All,

    My HP w/Win 7 is up to date and virus free, etc. the Sony DVD works sporadically, most of the time I cannot rip/play CDs or play DVDs. What I know/have done:
    - The drive operates i.e. when opening it the platter is running
    - Have checked for/updated drivers \through HP and checked the MS support sites to no avail.
    - I have used 'Fairstars CD Ripper" from CNET site w/limited success


    Short of replacing any suggestions?

    Regards/Thanks,
    Mojave1
    Regards,
    Marty

    Open the case and check that the connections are properly seated.
