I just don't understand

A couple of days ago my cd burner stopped showing up when using Nero. I only had the image burn option.(yes it's a ligit copy it came with the drive) so I tried to burn and image with Alcohol 120% and it worked fine. So I reinstalled nero and same thing. Thinking "damn corrupted windows" I repartitioned, reformatted and reinstalled windows.

so now windows is reinstalled and so is nero and same thing

the drive is a lite-on dvd/cd combo drive and it is setup in the device manager and did work before.

what could be wrong is the drive shot?

help me plz

I hadn't heard of Alcohol before but let me ask you, did the problem with Nero begin with the install of Alcohol? I ask because Nero and Creative had conflicts for years and I had a Nero conflict with a freeware music burning app.

Check the burner in device manager. It sounds more like a software thing than hardware. Have you checked for firmware updates for the burner?

Does it read DVD's and CD's?
