Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.

    It's probably jumped the track or the gears internally. You pretty much need to buy a new one.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.
    the "no true scotch, man" fallacy.

    CD drives aren't that complex, so taking it apart is rather easy. I don't know if you'll be able to fix it if it's physically damaged though...

    If you're going to buy an optical drive then, unless you can't spare the cash, a DVD burner would be a good idea, as they can read and write both CDs and DVDs. They also cost only ~$20 more than a CD-ROM drive. Some good brands are LG, NEC, Pioneer...
