You mean its connected to the same power cable as the case fans? What 
about the actual data cable? Its always worth disconnecting anything 
else on the same power cable / IDE cable, you never know what rubbish is 
going over the wires :-)

Although I wouldn't say that being able to previously burn a CD is any 
indication that its not faulty. Faults can develop and theres just as 
much chance of it being faulty in a way to cause it to not be able to 
burn DVDs only as there is of a drive being DOA. Have you flashed the 
firmware or was it 2nd hand where someone else could have flashed it?
