Question about Dell Computers & Internet
Hi! my optic drive suddenly stopped working
a message on the screen says, modular bay is not properly inserted or has maulfunctioned. what should i do?
I had this similar problem with my dell inspiron 1200. The only way I could get it to read a CD was to apply a great deal of pressure to the drive (although it worked for me i would not recommend as this could damage your computer).
Also check to make sure all of your drivers are up to date.
Other than that I would suggest buying a new drive.

Could be a mechanical dialignment inside the unit.. Could be a Disc has jammed inside there before, or some kind insidents that make the tray not properly back in place..
First make a check if the tray is properly fixed or properly return into place..
Thank you, & please post back how things get done...
