I have a 10 month old NEC ND-3550A (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827152058) that doesn't want to read discs anymore. The drive is recognized by Windows XP and says the device is working properly. When I insert a disc it'll spin it a few times, make a slight clicking noise, and spin it a few more times and then the green light will turn off. I then try to access the disc through My Computer and it gives the "Please insert disc into drive D:" message. Windows Event Viewer gives an Event ID 7 "The device, \Device\CdRom0, has a bad block." I've put the same disc in my E: which is a DVD-ROM and it reads them just fine. Already gone through the process of uninstalling the burners drivers and the secondary IDE channel drivers from Device Manager as well. I've noticed quite a few others have had theirs die after 5+ months on the newegg product comments and am wondering if I might have to RMA it as well. I haven't had a problem with any burner since the days of 4X CD burners.
