ML11 G2 - Disk light always on

My ML110 G2 yellow disk activity light is always on and the CD-ROM drive will not open, even with a paper-clip.

I left it running all last night and it was still the same this morning.

I recently removed a 2nd DVD-ROM drive and the original CD-ROM drive "D" is not visible in the hardware Device Manager.

Otherwise the System is operating OK, with all folders visible.

Just my luck, the 1-year on-site warranty ran out last week !

Anyone have any suggestions where to start to fault-find this problem ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: ML11 G2 - Disk light always on

Are both drives attached to the same IDE bus?

if so, check the jumpers, the drive at the end of the bus should be master and the drive at middle shoud be slave.

If the jumpers were OK, check the cable.

If the cable is OK, buy a new CD-ROM drive... sorry.
