    I have had it for about a year now, i have 1 DVD-ROM and 1 DVD-RW, both are plugged in and both work fine, they have been set to master and slave.

    My problem is when I start up my computer my DVD-RW pops in and out and keeps doing this until i restart my comp. During this time its not functional. Once i have restarted the computer once this problem vanishes. Does anyoneknow what can be causing this, its a just started to get a little bit irritating as of late as i have to switch on my computer twice just to make it work normally.

    Have you tried only running the DVD-RW on the cable and see if it still has the problem?
