lol. well i'll be taking it back 2morrow i think, hope i dont' get my time wasted from this lazy PC shop!
incase any1 else comes across the same problem, what the drive is doing atm:
Works fine when a disc is in, but occasionally (randomly) i will press eject and the drive will lockup and not respond. Windows will assume the drive now has no disc. It can lock up with tray closed or ejected.
Then i tap the drive, it suddenly springs back to life, but it is now ejecting at super speed. Then later on after i leave the drive, it might start working fine again, and then the next hour/day it'll freeze up and go back into hyper speed :a
not happy jan (aussie joke)
edit: congrats on 4000 c0deking
