Drive keeps spinning, without CD!

Hey folks, first post here, so I did some searching first to verify it wasn’t a common issue or anything, but I have an older ‘generic’ CD writer in my comp. The problem is that it’s currently empty, and yet it still spins as if trying to pick up data. It’s been doing it at intervals for about 2 hours now. The comuter was shut down and restarted, and there have been no changes of late. The only info I have on it is that I think it is a Pine, and device manage shows it as being simply ‘RW-21040’ I’m sure with this limited information, it limits the input you can provide, but anything at all would be helpful. Thanks in advance for your input! :slight_smile:

Sounds like an hardware issue. No idea how to solve this.
