    Ricoh CD/RW problems

    Hi ... my Ricoh 4x4x24 writer is about one and a half yrs old now and its been giving a few problems lately ... most notably it sometimes refuses to read certain files on a cd ... the blue error screen comes up and jams the PC ... however if I'm lucky and re-insert the cd about 4/5 times, it eventually reads the cd but not always. Can someone please help me with this problem ?? Thanks

    Ricoh never made a 4x4x24 drive. They did however make a 4x4x20 drive. From the sound of it I'd say that your lense is dirty. Just use some dust spray and try spraying the lense. If that doesn't seem to help you might want to remove the metal cover so that you can get to all the dust and dirt. Also make sure that you have the latest firmware for the MP7040A and that the DMA option in the device manager is disabled.

    Sincerely,
