is anyone seriously bothered by the fact that this drive is a good 1/2 inch to an inch shorter than most others?
it epsecially bothers me since mine is in a hp computer that has a faceplate covering the entire front of the tower. the buttons to open optical drives are lined up with the actual button so you press the button on the tower and it, in turn, presses the button on the drive.
with my 1640, the button on the tower doens’t reach the button on the drive! i have to either right click>eject or use my finger nail to pull open the drive door on the tower and press the drive button itself.
also, this is rather random, but does anyone know of a command or program that could be written to eject and then close the drive from the desktop? or better yet something i could associate with one of my unused keyboard buttons?
