On my new comp I was just going to install an OS, but whe I turned it on, the DVD Drive opened, then closed, then opened, then closed, then opened, and sat there, then I closed it, then it opend again, and did this repeatedly
I dunnot know why, it was working just fine before.

Its an I/O Magic Internal DVD+-RW/+-R 16x.

Does anyone have any clue as to why this happend or is just a faulty drive?
I hesitate to take it back because I already sent in the rebates about a month ago.

Make sure the open/close button is not stuck or some sort of debris inside is blocking it from closing. Blow into the open drive.

I found out what it was, human error. I remember when I was plugging in the front panel Audio I accidently pulled the Audio Cable out of the Drive, then I noticed, and plugged back into the spot that I thought it came from, but it was the wrong place. But all is well now. :thumbsup:
