Hi there. I’m Albert
I have recently been having a problem with my presario 1505. When I place a disk (cd, dvd, cd-r, etc.) in the drive, it begins to spin properly but after a certain speed or amount of time the black disk that hold the disk to spinning motor detaches and the disk is no longer recognized. After opening the drive again I found that almost no force is required to remove the black holder from the drive.
Although I have recently been unable to check, I believe the drive is working fine except for this seemingly minor mechanical failure. My question is can this be fixed with out buying a new drive? I have tried replacing the black holder in various positions and cleaning everything I can find does not help the situation at all. As it stands I have not been able to spin any disk for over two weeks.
Thanks for your help.
