    Question Can't insert disc into Slot Load drive

    I have a brand new slimline slot loading dvd/cd-rw drive, from the mp3car.com store...

    I have it hooked up and WindowsXP says it's all good, but I cannot insert a disc into it. It goes in about half way and stops cold. If I hit the eject button, the drive ejects it, although it's only about 1/2 inch of ejection. The drive did not come with any documentation. I have searched these forums as well as Google.

    The only lead I have is a friend of mine said that some older slot loading car stereo CD players had a screw in them that "locked them for transport", which would have to be removed before using the drive.

    I'm using a slimline to IDE adapter. I *think* it's getting enough power, but perhaps not.

    I don't see anything obvious on the drive. Any clues?

    There might be a screw. Contact the MP3Car store, although I tend to think they would have mentioned that somewhere. DId you ?

    It could be defective. It does happen. It doesn't sound like power or an interface problem with the MB. It sound hardware related.

    Like I said, the drive came with no documentation, so there was NFMtR

    It's a Panasonic CW-8124-B...

    I had a problem like this - with my travla case, try operating it with the lid off the case.
    I found that the case was squeezing the drive too hard and so it wouldn't accept CD's - took the lid off the PC case and it all worked - so just made sure there was more clearance when I reinstalled
