Something weird is happening with my PC, as it has already damaged two DVD drives. I noticed some time ago periodic freezes of 1 second or so, later increasing to 2-4 seconds. First I thought of a virus, but the computer was clean, then I noticed that the drive was no longer reading well all CD/DVDs and some time later it simply freezed. It arrived to a point where it would reboot the PC and even make the security fuse trigger and disconnect the electricity
I removed the drive (A HP write/read) and placed a normal DVD drive instead, which has been working perfectly for some months.
Now it has started doing the same thing again
and I have already disconnected it, but before installing a new drive I'd like to know if someone has had similar experiences or has any idea about what might be ruining my optical drives like that
