I own a Creative 5233e. And I had this problem once but was able to repair it, but this time it seems I need good advice.
Three days ago I tried to install Mafia. Everything went alright until the second cd was no more responding. Since the installation process stopped I opened the tray and of course the blue screen came up demanding for the CD. I closed again and tried to resume the installation process. But I had no luck. After trying with my Plextor I understood, that the CD was too scratched for the two drives.
:Z SInce that my Creative opens after everytime I close it again. So to speak I insert a CD it clicks several times the busy light lights up but then opens again and stays open. I’m not able to access the CD or anything else. Besides it seems to me, as if the system was used, when I close the tray since I cannot operate my computer while the CD-Rom tries to “read” the CD. :Z
I would be very glad to hear any suggestions what I should try.
