i have an atapi 52x cdrom, i can read what's on the disk, the light comes on when i press the eject button, and i even here it trying to eject, but the cdrom doesn't open. I can open it via pushing a pin in the emergency eject button. is it fixable? or should i toss it, cause i tried to install a new cdrom, but, my computer doesn't accept the new cdrom. maybe ide problems?:eek:

When you put the new CD Rom in, did you set the jumper on the back (Master/Slave/Cable Select) to match the setting on the old one?
