I have a dell dimension e521 computer and whenever i put a cd or dvd in the disc drive the computer doesnt recgonze it, play it, or anything. I cant burn cds, rip cds, watch movies, play cd roms, or anything. Can you please help me find a solution to this problem.
It failed the read test it said
error code 4E0F:021B
Msg: Block 74554: flaw in media or an error in the recorded data. if this is a removable device, retry the test with different media. (L-EC uncorrectble error)
I assume you tried other discs, so the obvious conclusion is that your drive has failed. Sorry about that. If you're still under warranty, call Dell for a replacement.
