Burn baby burn!

Does anyone know what would make the cdr drive stick close

The only way to get it open after inserting a Cd-rom is to eject from My Computer. I cant use the button to make the tray come out. Anyone have any suggestions. It only seems to lock audio cd's in the drive

Not a friggin gain this is the second drive i have recieved so far and to RMA this one. Oh boy, looks like it isnt for me to have a cd- burner. It only does this with audio cd's and not regular data cd's

Is there any chance you have some program running (or that auto-runs when a CD is inserted) that recognizes audio CDs and starts doing something with them in the background? It is possible, if I read the mmc command specifications correctly, for software to prevent a disc from being unloaded (via the PREVENT ALLOW MEDIUM REMOVAL command). So maybe some background process that only applies to audio CDs is running, recognizing the audio CD, and locking it in the drive as part of its processing.

Check and see what all process are running on your system when you have a audio CD in.

It may also be that some software you are using is locking the CD in but failing to unlock it. Try to just put the CD in and then eject it a minute later without running any programs (including auto-run/auto-play programs).

It might help if you tell us what set up you have - brand of CDRW drive, OS, etc...

If I recall, DirectCD seems to lock a CDRW in the drive until you unlock it...

I found the problem I have upgraded to the T504 firmware when i wnet back to 503 the problem solved itself. I guess it is a bug in the firmware that locks the drive unless something else is happening that i am not aware of. I checked to make sure that nothing else was using the Burner and possibly locking the drive so I concluded that it was the firmware
