    This is an ATAPI iHAP122W and my PC is a Dimension 3100C and Windows XP.
    I have put a new DVD driver.
    My PC is in the floor vertical and when I want to put in or out a disc, the drive moves the fast for me to put it in or take out.
    If put the PC horizontal, it works OK.

    If you move it slightly out of the PC case towards the front so it is sticking out....how does that work?
