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".

My cd rom tray will not eject and the light is

have you manually tried to eject the disc tray? There's a little hole on there somewhere, stick an unbent paperclip or safety pin in it and push until the tray starts to come out, then pull the tray out with your fingers.

Once you've done that, push the button to allow the tray to automatically retract.

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.

The DVD tray doesnt eject

either it is the ribbon wire, the motor that ejects the tray or the belt that connect the tray and motor is the problem. In case the above three are fine, replace the drive as the sparking might kill your moterboard.

On my liteon 5005, i press''eject'' i hear clicks, but the tray will not!!!!

Take a paper clip, bend it, and insert it into the small pin hole on the front of the player. It should be next to the eject button. This will open the tray up manually.
