Question about ASUS (CRW-5232AS QUIETRACK) CD-RW Burner
Well i reported this problem before but its different now.After a CD shattered and left a few pieces inside my CD ROM,it wouldn't open.But as i struggled i managed to get it open even to go so far as to take most of the broken CD bits out.But the problem is the CD tray wont remain closed.Even after i press the button and it goes back again,it keeps defying me.It wont close.So when i shut down i have to gently force it back to place or it will never close.Why does this happen? Shud i tek my CD ROM to the shop or is there another way?Did i some how caused it to happen?Your help would be appreciated....

There may be still some peices of cd's which block the cd tray to close. So try your best to clean those by unscrewing it from ur desktop. then try it. You can also try removing the screws of cd drive and clean it inside.
