Hello, I was recently unable to get hold of MS28's quickly for Lite-On replacements, so I bought a couple of new MS25's. One was fine, but the other, despite appearing identical, being from the same batch, and seemingly fitting perfectly in the chassis, does not allow the eject button to reach.
I have now tried this drive in 3 lite-on machines, an MS28 machine, and an Hitachi78 machine, and have exactly the same problem in each. They have been a mixture of white plastic arcade latches, and chrome premiums.
The button fits on the front of the drive fine, and when the lid of the case is on, the groove fits neatly into its correct location, but there is no "click" when physicaly pressing the button, so the only way to eject the tray is through the dashboard.
Has anyone ever experienced this, and is there a fix ?
