I have a Yamaha 16x10x40 in my PC, and have been hating it.  The tray
comes out about 2/3rds of the way out an slows down slightly.  My TEAC
cd-rom, just slides out full speed, as does every other cd-rom I have
seen.  I also have problems with the cdr's.  This piece of junk will
choke on anything but Imation CDR's.  Plus, If I write to a CDR, make it
readable in a plain cd-rom, and then try to write more to it later on,
the newer files aren't shown in another drive and computer. 
Furthermore, the CDs aren't readable in DOS.  I can see the files, but
can't access them.  Yet, the same cd-rom will access the burned cd under

Am I doing something wrong?  I spent $300 for this thing, thinking I was
buying the best!
