CWO, I dare say the drive needs replacing. I have discovered I have the same model sitting around. If that does not work then it is a genuine problem. Same thing happened to me. I will find out soon on another system if this drive works then I’ll askin about software till then I’ll get the drive you reccommended. Keep in tough my friend and let know how it goes!! What usually happens is the cable is ripped at either edge and the wires there are either damaged or severed, often right at a connector or under it’s cable clamp there, where it’s hard to see – if a wire is severed but it’s ends are touching, the connection is intermittent, rather than being reliable.
