I am having a problem where my DVD drive will not open. When i push the eject button, nothing happens, and there is no noice indicating it is jammed. If i go to my computer, D drive and select eject, my comp. freezes. I have drived roboting, turning off the computer and using the pin, reinstalling the dvd drive (benq 1640) and flashing the drive. I have also tried removing it using device manager and then reinstalling it.
So i think I'm going to have to take it back because its only a month old, but my question mostly is:
I bought this drive because the spinning motor on my old CD drive went, and now I'm suspecting the ejecting motor has gone. Why do the motors keep dying? is it possible there is a power problem shorting them out? the first drive lasted a year, and this one a month. So if anyone knows if that could be a problem, or any ideas how to make this drive work, I would really appreciate the info.
Thanks as always
