Nevermind all. Killing the drivers and a reboot seems to have fixed the problem. Why? I have no idea. I just know that I hate drivers.
Got quite a strange issue with a lite-on drive. IHAS324 is the model number, your standard DVD/RW, all that jazz. Anyways.
The door won't open correctly. Push the button, nada. There's a click when the button is pushed, so it's making contact. The drive will open via the 'paperclip' method, and when it's already open, the button will close, or set the door to 'reopening' before it settles all the way. I can even get it to open again if I push the button before the drive has settled completely. But, if I allow the door to close completely, button pushes do nothing.
The drive is only 90 days old, so it shouldn't be worn out, at least one would hope. Just peering through the open door, the drive belt is intact. Any ideas out there?
