Ive just answered the door(timewaster)
As I slump back onto the chair the gas-lift release has caught the open tray of my burner,releasing the hight
With the sudden downward movement the tray has bent .Its even pushed the drive back into the case.
It wont open or close without serious assistance.
Well its furket now anyway so with nothing to lose, I have a go at bending the tray back upwards.Two careful tweaks and now the tray opens and closes.Reads and writes perfecto.
Boy am I glad this didnt happen 6years ago when these drives were 600 sovs.
Anyone got their own hardware disaster to share
