Question about Compaq (224130-001) Internal 4x CD-ROM Drive
Hi, my cd/dvd opens then closes then opens and stays open even when I try to manual close it, it stays open. It would read anything. I've already replaced it once, I tried installing new drivers, device manager states that this devise is working properly but its not showing any files. can you please help?
> I've already replaced it once
Well, I've seen CD-drives that would re-open, when you try to close them -- it is _falsely_ detecting a "jam" as the tray is closing, and then just re-opens the tray, rather than "forcing" itself to close.
Replacing the CD-drive is the only way to fix that type of "false-positive" jam-detection conditions.
But, since you've done that, either you were unlucky-enough that the replacement drive was also "defective", or, you have a computer-virus on your computer that is maliciously issuing commands to the CD to "open-the-tray".
