Have you ran Antivirus software to see if there is a virus?

Something could be stuck in the drive causing it to continually open and close. Or, the button is shorted out or stuck pushed in. Causing the drive to think you are constantly pushing the button trying to open the drive. Hit/push the button on the front of the drive a few times to see if it un-sticks it. Also use a pin and push it into the emergency eject hole. You know, that little pin hole on the front of the drive. See if doing that causes the drive to stop going crazy.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
