Unplug the data cable and leave the power to the drive. Does it stay closed now?
Hi Ed. Stay Classy neighbor.
A very odd thing happened to me today - I got my system all corrected and running correctly, so I thought making a rescue disk would be a good idea - Windows 7 - 64 --
I executed the command and put in a CD, but the alert prompt said no media inserted - and the drive opened by itself - repeatedly. So I tried the other drive - also the same. So I gave up. Now the 2 optical drives open no matter how many times I close them manually, and even after booting the system again they still insist on opening no matter how many times I close them.
Anybody ever heard of anything like this or any solution to make them stay closed?
