Hi everybody.
Tried to find solution by myself, but never sow somebody reports about the same issue :(
I've 10.6.0 retail installed, and everything was works OOB (except of sound, but it's ok now), BUT: when I open the DVD drive (no matter which way: by hardware button or using keyboard combination) it opens very fast and keeps trying to eject it more (drive keeps buzzing) untill I press the button again. Than it stops to buzz but tray stays ejected. Press the button again - drive tries to eject the tray again. There is no way to close the drive but put it back manually (OS things that tray is open anyway).
If I boot 10.5.7 - it works alrgight.
:blink: I don't even know the way to look finding a solution.
MB is Asus p5b, DVD - some simple ASUS (SATA).
Any help will be appreciated

Hi.
Looks like the 10.6.1 update saved my DVD. After this is done (using builtin Software Update) DVD tray came back to normal work.
does Apple make updates for hacintoshes already? :)

I know it is an old topic, but I have the same DVD and the same problem.

Someone have found a solution?

Thanks... :)
