A few months ago i got a NU DVDRW DDW-081 (DVD Burner). All worked well for
awhile and then all of a sudden it stopped reading disc's, the troubleshooter
suggested that the problem could be that theres to many drives being used and
that and more then 4 will cause problems, i had 6. After correcting the fault
i uninstalled the DVD Burner and re-installed it to find it still not
working, the Device status state's that the device is working properly. I
refuse to beleive that it could be a faulty DVD Drive, coz it open and
close's fine and it try's to read but dosent seem to be able to, can any
body help i've tried all i can think of..

Have you tried a standard CD cleaning kit? The laser could be dirty/dusty?

Number of drives isn't usually a problem, providing your PSU is sufficient.
