DVD ejection blues

  brianMN 22:54 25 Apr 2004

Every time I try to use my dvd player the disc tray ejects but then immediately shoots back in again. I have to physically grab it and hold it in place to put a dvd in. If I do this I can at least play a dvd but now Ive just bought some dvd+r storage discs and they just keep ejecting and re-entering the player without registering in my dvd drive folder. My OS is XP and the dvd came with my computer. Im using Nero to burn the data but dvd options don’t show up when I try to use the wizard. Any ideas as to what may be going wrong?

maybe the drive is faulty.maybe the ide cable is faulty.

are you using the eject button on the drive or right clicking the drive/eject via my computer?

does this happen in both cases?
