Details of Open CD-R sugery, how to clean .
This link says if you are getting more coasters than usual, you may need to open it up for a severe clean job..
Warning, not for the faint of heart
Great info, Richard! Thank you! It's been bookmarked!
--All you need to do now is replace the recorder as you have just broken a good recorder.
Job is now complete, you have just completed a standard home service on your CD Recorder. All that you need to do now is to replace the recorder back into your PC.
(Hope they don't get angry)
I have an Affrey 50x CD-ROM that is BROKEN
Took it down to the bare bones then re-assembled it.
Odd how the mechanism works to hold the CD in place, it's a very quick movement to slam the disc into place.
It would be a good idea for anyone thinking about taking down their GOOD burner to first open a "Bad" drive and see if they feel competent.
thanks Muno, you're right
I have a DVD drive that the tray is "off track" time to pop it open and experiment...
In a box of Free junk a month ago, one of the CD-ROM's had the tray laying in the bottom of the box.
I stuck it back into the drive, it's been working fine since,, lucky me .
