I think my dvd problems are over. I went last evening to Chase IT Systems in Bay Pride Mall on Marine Drive. I had called them a few days back to tell them that I was facing issues with the Enter external dvd writer/player that I had bought from them on the 5th of this month.
I got there a little after 7:30 pm and they tested the drive out as I explained the problems. I was ready to pay a little extra and get an LG or Samsung model (after they knock off the price for the one I had already bought) but they didn’t have any on stock. Since I wasn’t ready to wait till Monday, they gave me another Enter dvd player and told me to use it for a few days and see if the problem persists (maybe it’s a faulty batch sent in from the manufactures or the brand itself is fucked up).
I said ok and took home a new one. It seems to be working fine and I can access files in dvds pretty well now. I’ll wait and see for a couple of days if any issues creep up before deciding to stick with this one.
