Drive will not stay closed

I have tried everything I can think of and I am wondering if my drive is shot. The drive stays open all the time. When I close it it will stay closed and after about two seconds it ejects again. Any suggestions?

INTERNAL CD DRIVE WONT OPEN


There are a couple of issues that can cause the tray of an internal optical drive to stay closed when you press the drive's eject button. One: there is no power to the drive. If the drive does not show up in the list of discs in the computer, this could be your problem. (In any Windows OS, click Start > Computer (My Computer) or double left click the icon for Computer.) You will need to open the computer and check that the power cable is fully seated and oriented correctly (it won't fit the wrong way). For a desktop, an IDE drive uses a 4 pin power connector. A SATA drive uses a 15 pin power connector. If your power supply has additional power connections for the type of drive, try a different connector. If the power connector has a 4 pin to 15 pin adapter, make sure this is fully seated. (Try a new adapter.) If that doesn't help, make sure that the power supply is providing enough power for all devices. The second problem may be failure of the open/close mechanism.

I recently had an optical drive that slowly had the open/close mechanism fail. At first the eject button wouldn't work when there was no disc in the drive; using the Eject option from the OS did work. Then the OS eject stopped working consistently and it wouldn't eject with a disc in the drive. I used the Emergency ejection option (straighten a paperclip)to check for a problem with dirt in the mechanism or the belt slipping and then put a disc in the drive. Replacing the drive was my final solution. (A new CD/DVD burner is under $20; thus it wasn't worth my time to fix the mechanism on a 5+ year old optical drive.)

Some Lite-On (and related OEM) drives develop this problem early. For these drives, the problem is that the magnet that holds the optical disc in place actually blocks the drive tray. The solution that some find works, is to remove the optical drive and open the outer-case of the unit. (This should be avoided if the drive is still under warranty.) There is a circular section in the case and that is the section that you want to access. Pull out the magnet and make two circles of duct tape just slightly smaller than the magnet. Stick a nail through the center of the circles. (You need the hole to make sure that it still functions correctly. The circles are smaller than the magnet to avoid getting adhesive inside the optical drive.) Stick one of the circles to the magnet (and then put the second circle on top of that). Replace the magnet and close the case of the optical drive. Replace the drive in the computer. Plug in the data and power cables and close the computer back up. Make sure that the data cable is still firmly connected to the motherboard before closing the case. (Note: be careful to stay grounded relative to the computer case when you remove the drive and then replace it.)

The SE-S164L is an external drive, so you may not have given the correct model. Please add a comment with the model optical drive in your computer. Slot-loading drives require a different trouble-shooting routine.

I hope this helps.

On the sony crx140e....I push the button, tray opens...push button to close, and tray moves about one inch and just stays there...push button again , tray opens again....So, gets stuck or won't close ...


It's age. It's an older drive. You can tell by the 8x4x32 speed.

Sony has manuals at http://sony.storagesupport.com/product/180#documents

My advice is buy a new one. Make sure you specify anEIDE interface and not SATA. They can be found online for as little as $18. Walmart has them too, but run almost double in cost.

Panasonic SW-9571-CYY Ejects DVD RAM Cartridge.


Hi, I don't know if you ever solved this problem - but I had the same thing on my SW9571CYY. The solution is to replace the small drive belt inside the drive ( It is very thin and doesn't seem up to the job it has to do). Just remove the two screws on the rear, then the seven screws holding the plastic cover with the springs on it (don't worry - everything stays in place). Lift the disk tray out and the little belt is towards the front. I used an old belt from a broken LG GSA-5163D that was lying around. I think it would be difficult to find the correct spare so some people have even used a "O" ring with a slightly smaller diameter than the original belt.
Hope this helps Dwane4444

Drive light gets stuck on at reboot


Hi,
Try swapping the Jumper block ( Small plastic pin connector ) on The Back Of the DVD Drive. If using both Hard-Drive And DVD Drive on the Same IDE Cable. The DVD Should be set as Master And Hard-Drive As Slave, Or Vice versa.
Failing This, put The Hard Drive On Primary IDE Channel, And DVD On Secondary Channel.
These suggestions, have been made as it appears from your problem listed, that the 2 drives Are Conflicting with each Other.
Finally, is to try a different 4 pin ( Molex ) power cable to either device/Drive. if you have a single rail Power supply unit. the 2 units sharing a joint power cable, may be draining the PSU.

Hope this helps.
