Question DVD Drive ejects automatically frequently...
Hi all,

I have LG DVD-RW 16x.

But 10-20 times a day, my dvd drive ejects automatically and stays out only and only sometimes goes back inside. Sometimes in a minute time it comes and goes back 4-5 times. Don't know how it happens automatically. I HOPE NO GHOSTS !

Is there any trojans or virus OR is my drive not been connected properly or configured properly. But it works fine when i use it. That time it never comes out. All media or data burned are also perfect, not a single disk error till now.

ONLY PROB is that it comes and goes back inside automatically... VERY ANNOYING

Please help...

Any chance you could try another drive that would rule out a software problem. Chances are though that there is a problem with the drive and it may need to be replaced or repaired.

Thanks for replying...

Well arranging another drive - hmmm... frankly speaking not possible unless I buy, which is again not possible. I still have warranty period with me remaining. But I asked this hoping if anyone else has faced such problem or might have heard of such problem and then knows the reason and solution.

I find that Computer based DVD is somewhat unreliable. I've yet to have a programme on my computer that will play DVDs for more than a couple of days before I start getting the usual array of error messages (and Cyberlinks programme doesn't show the "Universal player" and won't work at all). WMP shows the guff about licences - even after completely reinstalling the programme, and even then not able to do a backup of the enclosed licences that are supposed to be included in it. I do have one programme that does work - but not particularly straight forwardly.

I'd rather see a DVD player you can buy with a USB socket that can plug into your USB on the computer. This can't be that difficult - particularly with the USB 2.00 that's commonly available these days!

Check that the faceplates on the tray and the drive are seated properly. They may even appear to look ok but it doesn't take much.

Edit: isee it's going back in by itself? you can probably ignore my post.
