OK, here's a weird problem. I replaced my Plextor PlexWriter RW 4/2/20 (external SCSI) with a brand new Yamaha CRW-F1ZSX, 44/24/44 (external SCSI). The Yamaha worked fine for two weeks on my Windows XP system, but now....the caddy won't stay in, whether there is a CD in it or not. (Of course, I've powered down, rebooted, checked termination, etc.--no difference. XP's Device Manager keeps assuring me that the device is working properly. The SCSI BIOS sees it OK.) The manual says that if all submitted CD's are ejected (not accepted), then take the drive back to the seller. Well, it's Sunday and I would like to know if there are any drive diagnostic programs which can fix or at least explain this problem today.
