I have a similar model that was emitting on buzzing noise (headache-giving noise) even at idle. I RMA it and since then no problem. Call them, they don't ask any question, just ship it to them and get a new one back.

I also heard that some mobo were ignoring the drives out of nowhere. Check with your mobo manufacturer too, maybe a firmware/bios/whatever upgrade.

Since it's LG it doesn't surprise me. I had 2 LG DVD drives that crap out on me in similar fashion.

@Mayoo: did you call to initial a RMA or used their Internet form? I tried looking for it online but their web is crap.

Seems strange was the computer on and you moved it to do some cleaning or was it off an you moved it to another room? Does the drive get any power at all that you can tell? If you do just decide to replace it go LiteOn they seem to be pretty decent BD drives Had mine for a year and a half now and moved 3 times still no issues with it.
