Question about Sony DRU-820A DVD RW Dual Layer Burner
I have a Sony Dual RW Drive, double layer, dual layer. I've been burning movies for over a year, love my machine. Lately it has been making funny noises and now it won't open at all, when I press the button, the light comes on and I hear a click but it doesn't open.
Sounds like the drive belt may have slipped off or snapped. You can open the tray manually. To do this, take a look at the front of the drive where the open button is, and there should be a small hole, just big enough for the blunt end of a sewing needle. This is the manual release.
The other thing is, it might just be catching on the case (may have been knocked at some point). Disconnect and remove the drive, then just put it back in. If you have a desktop, you can remove the front panel of the drive and re-attach it.
Hope those solve the problem
