There's not much sense in worring about it. When a CD explodes in a drive it ruins the optics lense and often other parts. The cost of replacing the drive is less than the cost of the repair.

Trying to install XP when disk selection comes up it reads, "Unkown disk. There is not disk in this drive". NOt sure what that means.


your drive is not being read,
have you set BIOS to boot from CD ROM,
is your CD ROM working,
is your XP CD working

Do the following
1 go to BIOS and re-set to BOOT from CD ROM
2 use another copy of XP/Win98/Vista etc to verify if CR ROM is reading the CDs else...
if you doubt CD ROM drive has a problem....
3 use a USB external CD ROM, and to do that u need to re-set the BIOS to boot from USB CD ROM

My ps3 won't take the disc it is like there is a lever in the way what do i do?


did you take the drive apart with a disc in it?

There are 2 little white "bars" that pop up when the disc is inserted most the time this happens when a drive is taken apart with a disc still in it and its not in the ejected state.

if you didnt take it apart then there is prolly a cd in there still and there is a problem ejecting, if you did take it apart here is how to reset everything to the right working state. sorry if its hard to follow.

to get it back to normal you need to reset it, if its under warrenty send it in cause the only way to fix this is by taking apart the ps3 and and the blu ray drive.

ussually this happens when a drive is taken apart with cd in and you remove the loading gears cover(the black piece with the levers and the wheels) off.

when you put this cover back on you need to make sure that the wheels are open all the way --- right wheels up and to the right, ..left wheels up and to the left. When its open like that you can see the gaps where those little white bars fit into just put it back on with it open and the bars in the gaps.

usually your looking at more steps though because the rest of the hinges on the lid wont line up. you can try to put the cover back on and eject and try loading an old or blank cd, blank because if something is off it may scratch it.

see if everything works.

if not you need to re-align everything to be in the ejected state. to do that you have to manually move the long black piece on the left side of the drive(with the cd inserting side facing you) and firmly but carefully push it twards the back of the drive and the laser should lower. it may make a poping noise if you go to far but should be fine its just the piece going to far out and poping off the gear. to test it push the cd guide wheels open and it should raise the laser and you can now lower it using the eject button. if it doesnt and you just hear a spinning gear gently nudge that long black piece on the left that you pulled back earlier towards the center of the drive and it should catch itself. after every thing raises and lowers fine make sure its in the ejected state and put the cover back on. should work now.

GigaBank 250 GB USB 2.0 External hard Drive - How to open case ?


Remove the cover plate from behind the drive (where the plugs and on/off switch are.) You have to then remove the 2 screws. After that pull on the end with the blue lights to slide the hard drive out. If you have a tower computer, you can permanently install the hard drive and it should work fine as a secondary drive. Just make sure the jumper pins are set to "slave".

I/o Magic 320gb external hard drive--how do i open it?


on the back where you plug things in, there is a silver piece of metal. you need to pry that open with something. i used a tweezer and put it into the edge of the usb port to pry open the silver metal. the silver metal is just stuck onto the black plastic. once you get that metal off, there are two screws. unscrew those and you should be able to get in!

A cd broke in my cd rom


I've seen and come across cd-roms where cd's have broken (or in most cases exploded/shattered). In one case the drive flew open and bits of cd flew across a classroom, in most cases the drive remains shut (even the tray can get jammed).

This problem is usually caused by a flaw on the cd itself, a scratch or mark on the cd causes it to 'wobble' and due to the speeds cd-roms spin cd's they come off the 'spindle' inside (all that holds it on is a magnet).

I have taken cd-roms apart and removed all the cd parts and the drive has worked perfectly afterwards. Other times the drive has needed to be replaced, so i would say its purely luck if your drive isn't damaged in some way.

Although the problem could have been your drive. Without being able to get the drive ejecting and spinning cd's again you'll never know... just make sure you don't use an important cd to test it with!

CD ROM is jammed-wont open


This has happened to me. Sometimes when I'm in a hurry I'll place a CD or DVD in the tray and start to close it without making sure that the disk is seated flat in the tray. If it's ****-eyed the CD wil shatter when the tray is closed. The only way to remove the pieces inside the CD drive is to take apart the CD drive. Might be easier just to replace the unit. They run from about $25.00 to $75.00. One other note: You can try to open the tray manually by inserting the end of a paper clip into a small hole on the front bezel of the drive.

My computer will not read my io magic giga bank 6 gb


Was your computer ever able to recognize your GigaBank, or is it new?

The most common problem people have with a new drive not showing up in My Computer are:

1) The drive is not formatted

2) The drive letter is mapped incorrectly

You can check both of these things in Disk Management by right-clicking on My Computer and choosing Manage, then clicking on Disk Management on the left hand side.

If your drive doesn't show up in Disk Management, and you are also unable to see the drive on multiple computers, then you may be experiencing a hardware malfunction.

If you are still within your warranty period and you are experiencing a hardware malfunction, we will be happy to replace your unit for you. Specific warranty and replacement information is available at www.iomagic.com, by clicking on Support.

Have a nice day,
