I’ve had a Toshiba 10x/40x DVD-ROM for about 2 years now. About a year after I got it, I started having this bizarre problem. Whenever a CD was in the tray, the drive would just randomly pop open. Sometimes if I closed the tray it would just pop back open again. Occasionally the computer wouldn’t be able to locate the drive at all, and sometimes it would but it would not register a CD in the tray. The frequency of these problems increased until I finally just gave up and replaced it with a CD-RW drive.
I still have the Toshiba drive, so I was just wondering if any of you might know what problem(s) it is that plague me with it?
