Question about Magic (IDVD16DDBE) DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner

1 Answer

The actvity light just stays on and the tray does not eject

I have Magicspin model # DVDRW 1016UI which was working fine with my Windows XP. Then my computer needed to be fixed and had to be disconnected from all other software and hardware (including the DVD burner) to be brought in for repair. When the computer was fixed and connected with all the other programs my DVDRW burner did not work properly. The light would go on but the tray would not eject. I do not have a manual to troubleshoot this problem. Can you help me? Do I need a driver and if so where can I get it. I only have the DVDRW burner for two years and would hate to buy a new one. I shouldn't have to buy a new one. Please help.

Does it have a small hole anywhere on the front? Using a spread out paper clip, gently insert end of clip (now a wire) into hole and press gently, should release tray. Can do it with power off or on, but reccomend off.

If you can open MY Computer or Windows Explorer or some other file system viewer, right click the cd/dvd and select "Eject".

Find out the voltage and amp ratings and you could pick one up somewhere like maplins or any other electrical department store. Also check the connecter and make sure you get one that fits.

your cd drive might just be jammed. on the front of the drive there is a little pin hole. find yourself a safety pin or paper clip and insert it in the hole. push the pin in and it will unlock the drive door. with the door open restart your computer.

Liteon dvdrw tray does not open

I had the same problem with my LiteOn dvd re-writer. It appears to be caused by a worn or slipping drive belt. I found the following link helpful
After manually ejecting the tray using a bent paperclip, the drive belt was easily removed, washed in warm soapy water, dried thoroughly and re-attached. Tray opened and closed perfectly. Still looking for a new replacement belt though!
