    Its from a 52X sony dc-rw drive and its a toggle switch used to detect
    whether the door is open or closed. Its basically a microswitch with a
    white actuator arm that can be toggled left or right and returns to center
    via spring action. This one I have is defective and would like to be able
    to search under its proper name at digikey or someplace. Thanks!

    I would start under micro switches. You can do a general web search to look
    for something as close as possible. There is a good chance that the one in
    the drive was custom made for them. If you find something that is close, you
    may have to do some improvisation.

    It is unfortunate, that the manufactures refuse to sell parts, or supply any
    service information for their products. They want us to throw everything
    away when the warranty is finished.

    your best bet might be to buy another drive like that one on e-bay for
    parts

    I've decided to do as the manufacturer desires and scrap the drive-curse
    them anyway--when we live in a garbage choked world i hope they'll be
    happy....

    We all will be happy when people decide that all those
    toys aren't really necessary in order to live a happy life!
