Hey all, I appear to have run into an interesting problem concerning my computer and CD/DVD burners. I have a Dell Dimension PC that I bought about 3 years ago. This past September the OEM burner in my PC broke and wouldn't eject the tray, I figured that this was just old age since the computer is getting close to being 3 years old. The computer was out of warranty so I went and bought a new Sony CD/DVD burner that I was able to install with the help of a friend who works with computers. The Sony burner worked for several months and than quit working around December or January. Naturally I was surprised by such a short life span and contacted the store who told me that there was nothing that they could do. I decided that I would go out and get another burner from a different brand so I went out and bought a new (slightly more expensive) HP CD/DVD burner and installed it myself, once again that one works like a charm for several months and is a really good burner.....until yesterday when I went to eject the tray and stick a new disc in and the damn thing will not open!!!! At this point the burner has probably been in the computer for about 4 or 5 months, it shouldn't have stopped working like this, so soon. I popped open my PC to make sure nothing is disconnected under there and everything is in good working order under there. Two CD burners in a row that have failed on me within 3 to 4 months! this can't be possible, any ideas on what could possibly be going on with my computer and CD burners? Thanks!
