When testing DVDs at work with Nero CD/DVD Speed, sometimes the tray will refuse to open after testing for PI Errors, etc. And this drive is relatively new, less than a year. The LED stays lit and I can still hear the disc spinning. Does my computer just hate me or is there something I’m missing?
Nope your not nuts. Some have reported that a 1640 tray will not open and needs the paper clip trick, then it opens and closes at light speed for about a dozen times before it settles back down. The cause has never been confirmed.
