View Full Version : CD-RW 'Cannot seek to requested Location'



18-10-2001, 02:33 PM
Ok, I have a CD-RW that used to work fine, a while back I changed the motherboard however, and since then it is working rather sporadically.
It does still work, however it usually fails, so I open the case, mutter several uncomplimentary things to it, poke it a few times and it works fine. As far as I can tell there is no loose connections, just sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt, and it always returns the same error 'Cannot seek to the requested location'
Any suggestions that dont involve poking and cursing?
