Where do I begin ? Firstly the drawer will not open when pressing the button but will open when going through My Computer selecting the drive then clicking eject.It will also open if the button is pressed as soon as the power is turned on and nothing has loaded. When it closes again it thinks there is a disc in (little light flashing) and everything freezes. I've been looking at previous threads and tried removing the drive through Device Manager and rebooting but without success. No problems with my CD Rom drive. I'm running Win Me. Any ideas please.
Do you by any chance have Direcdt CD or InCD packet writing software installed - both of these software packages hijack the drive .You can only open them by clicking on the Incd /Direct cd icon on the taskbar.It is to prevent you from attempting to open the drive whilst it is writing data to the disk.
