I’m hoping someone can help me with a problem. I’ve done a search but can’t find anything.
I have a Philips 8601 that I crossflashed to a BenQ DW1620 a few years ago and it’s been working fine in that time. But, just a few weeks ago I started burning coasters (on TY media, no less). But what’s really strange now is that now everytime I bootup my computer, the tray will pop out half way and stay like that. If I hit the eject button it comes all the way out. If I hit it again, it does nothing and then a minute or two later, it’ll close the tray back up VERY fast. Once it closes back up, I can hit the eject button and it’ll do nothing, then finally open up half-way a few minutes later. It also causes my computer to hang when booting up (the green light flashes even without a disc in the drive and the tray in the half-way open position.)
Does anybody know if I can remedy this problem? I REALLY like this drive, the burn quality is excellent and the BenQ scans are really nice to have. Also, if anybody can tell me if it’s possible to crossflash it back to the Philips 8601, I’d also appreciate it.
Thanks in advance!
