This INTERNATIONAL forum is not your personal helpdesk. If you want instantaneous 24/7 on demand support, I suggest you pay for it. In the meantime, you’ll just have to wait until people have some time available to help you. 20minutes is NOT a long time to wait for help.

As to your question … it doesn’t make sense.

How can a drive read when the tray & the disc has been ejected?
Please think about what your problem is and clarify your question.
