    I've had this probmlem on several machines, usually
    when I just turn it on and then it goes away:
    The CDROM door doesn't open on the first try.
    It almost always works better from software

    Lubricant drying out, drive belt slipping?

     


  3. Possibly the eject buttons relate to funky tact switches inside. Maybe
    unusual to have more than one, but it explains everything.

    More likely if the switches are rarely used (the internal contacts tarnish)
    and especially if there are smokers in the house.

    The most common cause of this is a dried up loading belt. Very common, I have replaced hundreds of these over the years. Depending upon your source, the belt cab be anywhere from $2-$5.

    I've had that problem on on one or more drives. No real solution.

    It makes noise like it is trying to open, but doesn't.

    It could be the door just doesn't fit right.

    *+-Does it ALWAYS work the second try?

    No.. sometimes it drags on..

    But it may have to do with the startup state

    Sometimes I can open it just when I turn on the computer,
    other times it will open once Windows is up..
