OK here's the story: I put a CD-R into the cdrom so I could back up some files. After I was finished backing up I went to eject the cd and a red light came on. I tried restarting it and turning it off and on but it still wouldn't eject and the busy light was constantly on. I was finally able to eject it while the computer was booting up. Sometimes it will give me my cds back and sometimes it won't. What's my problem? I have a "CD-Writer Plus" 4x4x32 with no emergency eject hole
PS I had no trouble reading the cd or accessing it.
ive never heard of a drive with no emergency eject hole.. thats odd. it sounds like your drive doesnt like the cds that you're trying to burn on. try new CD-Rs, and even try a different burning program (what are you using?).
I've been using the same brand of CD-Rs for quite awhile and this is the first time I've had troubles. I use Adaptec Easy CD Creator 4 to burn. And yes the burner is old I suppose I need a new one anyway.
