I just posted about the DVD+RW drive and I have some EXTREME news. I had installed the new pioneer 109 drive and taken the old sony drive out and I decided to take apart the sony just to see what it looked like. THERE WAS A PIECE OF PAPER STUCK INSIDE! It was a ripped off little piece of yellow notebook paper that said medium rare, and not my handwriting what so ever, nor would it ever have gotten in there. I am willing to bet a lot of money it came shipped that way, and it was causing the laser not to be able to read any of the discs, and that explains the loud noises. WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO NOW?!?!?! I have a new Pioneer 16x drive that i got for about 100 bucks after shipping and everything, and a Superdrive that is slower. The Pioneer drive doesn't fit correctly but i can make it work kinda. Should I send back the Pioneer and just stick the Sony back in? ANY ADVICE?? This is really really bizarre, and my jaw is dropped.
