Question about Sony DVD-ROM DDU1615-ZB 16X IDE 512KB 100 85MS BEIGE WITH SONY LOGO BULK. LEAD DVD Drive
I have a internal Sony DVD-ROM DDU1615 on my Dell Optiplex GX620.
Recently when I attempted to open the drawer to play a CD it would not open. The motor to open it was running but did not bring the CD tray out. I had to use the "emergency" opening procedure (the small hole). When I put the CD in the tray, closed the door, the DVD-ROM would not read the CD, the (I guess) opening motor kept running. I again used the small hole to open the drawer to take out the CD. If I close the door the motor keeps running, so at the present time I have the drawer out so that the motor will stop running.
I would appreciate any suggestions as to my next move. Thank you
Unless you can do electronic repair yourself and have the schematics for the drive it will be far cheaper and easier for you to simply replace it. Any DVD drive for computers will fit in there. I would buy a new one rather than used so you make sure and get the software with it. Replacing the drive is a 30 minute job at most.
