I have a Sony DVD writer thats on my desktop. Everything worked fine for a year until when after a long time (since I dont use the DVD drive much) I pressed the button to pop in a DVD, and the tray wouldnt open. I tried a multiple times and it simply wont.
The only way I can now open this is to go to Windows Explorer and right click on the DVD drive and click on Eject.
The drive functions well otherwise and it reads the discs and there is no other issue.But it simply wont respond to the manual switch.
What could be wrong ? If the drive train or the teeth of the mechanism was damaged it wouldnt have ejected when I tried the windows explorer method.
Any inputs will be greatly appreciate.
Thanks a ton.
