I just had a very rude surprise this evening…I was going to pop a disk into the drive (DW1625) and discovered that the button was not opening the unit, nor was right clicking on it in Explorer and hitting ‘eject’ getting anywhere.
So, my question is, do these drives have a history of crapping out overnight?
I did use it yesterday and it worked fine then. I haven’t needed it at all until a couple of hours ago, so I wasn’t using it earlier in the day. I also thought I had the drive for a bit longer than I have…it was purchased in May 2006…so it is just a few months out of warranty.
