    sounds like the case isnt pressing one of the lid sensors. Did it come with any metal peaces that you didnt fit.

    updated !!!!! worked on it tonight got it to work!!!

    ok the blue clear ghost case henges are not long enough to trip the tiny black switch when you close the lid...to fix it i put a wraper from a hershey's mini candy bar and folded it soo that it is tin foil on the outside and thiers a way to place it soo that when the lid closes it hits the folded wraper and turns on the cd rom when i close the lid.

    kanda funny how i fixed it with candy bar warper !

    i need no more help !!! cheers!!!
