Try opening the drive with the emergency exit, there is a small hole next to the eject button, insert a pin or needle to open the tray with that, in most cases the drive tends to act like this after 2-3 years of use. not an error with the drive but the belt on the motor that opens the tray gets loose.

Radio won t shut off when the drive door is open

It is because you didn't open/close the driver side door. Contrary to the RAP system on earlier GM vehicles, the accessory power will stay on until the driver side door, rather than any door.

97 Mercury Mountaineer driver side door won't open. Outside handle flops around; inside handle won't open door

Try a slim jim first, down the side of the window. Or AAA or locksmith. If no luck, remove the seat first. Find the screws and bolts around the door handle and arm rest. Most Ford's have screws around the outer side of the panel. I don't believe your's does. The panel lifts or pops off. Once the panel is off, you can reach down and open the door. Just a note. I have done some to where the panel came out in pieces.

Here is something to try as a "quick fix" The drive's laser lens might simply have some dust or particles on it which may be causing it to fail to read the DL DVD's. If you use the drive heavily, and I use mine that way, constant opening and closing of the door always allows contaminants to enter--nature of the beast. Try a cleaning cd first. Did you change brands of DVD's? That's an annoying little phenomenon that I encountered with *my* new drive(LG).Some brands are more easily read than others--I've read lots of consumer feedback from people who've experienced this. Next, try a firmware update--the proprietary software that makes the drive operate. This isn't the drivers on your computer. A lot of times, manufacturers will come out with these special updates which fix bugs, have more efficient methods of reading media, or make the drive operate more smoothly. Hope I helped you.--Rick
