I seem to have a problem with two HD-Dvd drives that I purchased from TXMaxx last week. I power the unit on and insert a disk. The drive opens fine, disk in then closes fine. After about a second or two, the drive opens by about a Centimetre. This problem happens on both drives. Even with no disk in, I open and close and it does the same.
The green light stays on when the drive is open, then starts blinking as it closes. Once closed and re-opened by two centimetres it continues to flash.
I've managed to install the drive fine on both my laptop and my XBox 360, but obviously it doesn't play any disks.
I can push it shut but it wont read any disks. What's the chances of BOTH being faulty?
Just to add, When the drives are connected to the Xbox (one at a time), the Hd-DVD option on the dashboard says opening all the time. So basically, you open the drive, insert disk, close drive, the drive opens itself by a few centimetres and the dash says 'opening'.
This happens on two drives
Was away to send the second drive to my brother, but it looks like they are both knackered. Need to install XP on a Dell Mini urgently. Is there something similar to disk mode for the PC?
