I don't think it's a problem with the motors since I could eject and the disc position changed after each attempted read. It could be the lazer but I don't know.
Here's some things I could possibly do to troubleshoot it;
- Restore the drive and check for functionality (Then reflash)
- Swap out the spindle to make sure its "clamping" the disc properly
- Swap out the drive's circuit board. This would be my last resort and I would definitely need some assistance or practice.
Please let me know what I should try and/or what my problem might be. Thanks for reading through my situation and thanks in advance for your replies.
