I have a Philips CD burner 32x12x8 or thereabouts that is around a year old. It has begun locking up my computer and making clicking noises now and then. The other day I was installing some software and the drive shot open with the CD spinning madly in the tray. I am using Windows 98SE. This has happend both on my old system (P3 500) and my new one (P4 2.4G). Is it possible that a firmware upgrade would solve this problem or should I just go buy another drive?
