    The stock DVD drive in my desktop sounds like a hurricane filled with wasps and helicopters. If I actually used the drive even on a weekly basis I would consider a replacement but the thing sits sullen and unused

    Perhaps it is moaning and groaning because it wants to play with its friends.

    I assumed it was for UrKo as well, I don't have IDE on my mobo anyway so I can't take it off your hands either

    If so, SATA would be more convenient. But check that you have a spare SATA port and power connector in the PC.

    Ladies! If a man says he'll fix something - he will. He doesn't need reminding about it every six months, OK?

    You can open it up and try to fix it yourself, or you can pick up a new sata one . Rom's aren't that expensive these days.

    It would be fun to open and take a look if you could fix it. Maybe there's a plastic piece broken off the tray. I think that's possible.

    OMG , just realized this is a bump of an old thread
