Wont eject what should i do

I bought a Mad Dog MD-18XTFE external dvd drive, worked great until i tried to eject the disc. gave me the option of preparing the disc for use without drag and burn software, which is most convenient, so i said yes. said this would take 1 to 4 minutes: it's been going for over 30 minutes now, what should i do???

Hi! My reply is a bit late, but if you still have the same problem this may help.

You can force your DVD rom to eject a disc by poking a paper clip into the small hole near the eject button. Insert a paperclip into the hole for a few seconds (perhaps 10 to 30 sec). You may need to repeat the process several times until it ejects the disc. In case you are wondering where is this little hole - it's on the left side of the eject button.

Good luck and have a nice day!

Make sure your jumper settings are correct. If it's your only drive, set it to "Master" if it's a second drive set it to "Slave"

Mad Dog External DVD Writer


I don't know if I can be of any help here, but I purchased my Mad Dog Multimedia MEGASTOR DVD+/-RW burner a few years ago for my PoweSpec with XP Home Edition. I recently bought a new computer installed with Windows Vista Home Premium (which yes, I actually do love) and my external Mad Dog works perfectly, I didn't even have to update any drivers, it recognizes the drive everytime I plug it in (via USB). I don't need it anymore, but it's actually a better burner than the one that came with my system, which I bought new in March, although it's now discontinued. Do you have the disk for it? If so, have you tried running the disk again? What OS and processor do you have? In the event that it might be a matter of obtaining the proper driver for it to work for you, I also am a member of a great and extremely reliable site for free driver downloads. Free membership is limited to a few downloads within a certain period of time,and then you have to wait 24 hours, but other than that there is no limit so that's what I do. Just for the record, there was a period where my old XP was out of commission and I had to resort to my very old HP Pavillion that was about 10 years old, came with Windows 98SE(when that OS was brand new) and all I needed to do to make Win98 recognize the drive was download a driver and it worked just fine. LOL, that has a processor that runs at 600 megahertz, so you can imagine if my Mad Dog worked on systems like that, XP Home and now Vista Home Premium without a hitch, I was quite impressed with their products.

Mad Dog Hard Drive - Immediate Help


The grand majority of these external hard drives can't withstand being dropped from 3 inches, and some can't be dropped 1/2 inch. In other words, to retrieve your data, you will have to send it to a specialist, who will charge you between $300 to $1500 to get the data, with no guarantees. What a deal. I had a Fantom 120 gb, my dog knocked it over, and by by data. The fact that it is making noises means it has been knocked out of kilter. Try calling them with your warranty, but I bet it won't cover it. The whole industry is a big ripoff, as they do not warn you that you can lose everything at the drop of a hat (as it were). Only one company guarantees a drop of 7 feet that I know of. Better off to back up your data using an online secure system. Some cost only $4.95/month. Sorry.
