    M700 Drive

    I had a new drive in an M700 last January and it now looks like it’s failing again with the M700 wanting to eject discs. I know that the drive is a Sony Optiarc 5640h but these are no longer available. Has anyone tried any “compatible” drives? many thanks

    M700 "Unidentified Disks"

    I agree completely. I have a dead M700 with a "likely" drive failure. However, I have to pay £250 for a new drive and that is non refundable even if it is not the drive. And then it is as you have posted if it is not the drive. Whilst I still love the interface and have been tempted to go...

    109 Discs Awaiting Ejection

    Thanks Jim Have now resinserted all the discs but 3 won't be recognised. One was installed in 2013, 2 others are the kids favourites...typical! Is K hardware becoming more frail (as a result of cost cutting) or just due to age as the number of failures seem to be getting higher (drives, etc)...
