Hello, the CD Rom Drive on my computer won't open. I removed the cables, re-set it, tried to uninstall and reinstall it; nothing happens. I replaced it with another drive and the same thing happened. I was able to open it with the old paper clip trick. Also, it will open and close if there is a CD already in the drive. Any help would be appreciated.
I hate when that happens to my dvd drives after a while 2 years more or less, all I can tell you about is this; That drive is half dead. And you will have to keep always a disk inside it so it will open. I would say it is a electricalmechanical problem with the little engine which does the job to open the drive. Once I tried to fix it in one of my drives with not succes. maybe you should buy a new dvd drive. Maybe your other drive is old too and got the same issue.
