Hi, I have an Acer 40max cd reader (no R or RW),
the problem is that when I open the tray, as soon as it reaches it’s most extended position (sorry I can’t explain it better) it “bounces” back and gets closed.
If i push the open button while it’s closing, then sometimes it opens fully and stays there for a couple of seconds. On top of the annoyance, there is always the risk that my cd-rs get trapped by the tray when I’m placing them there.
Also, from time to time, the drive’s led starts blinking and the ide bus gets busy as if the drive was looking for a cd or a cd TOC, and it even happens when there is no CD in it.
This all happens on different OSes, no OSes, and different MBoard, cables, etc.
I cleaned the lens, but it was my first time, so I probably was a litte too careful doing that.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance
