    ooops!

    just finished work and went round turning the t.v.'s off. got 2 the brand new HD dvd player, tipped it up to get to the usually poorly placed switch on the back and; *********************.

    the loudest, most un-natural noise to ever come from electrical hardware beamed out!!

    worked out the deck the disc sits on does not like to be tipped/shaked!
    the tray wouldnt open and disc would not load!! oh dear, brand new £400 kit broken!

    luckily i was on my own so when ryan comes in 2moro; 'it was ok when i turned it off last night'
    lol

    most things don't like to be moved with a spinning disc.... the gyroscopic stability of the disc spinning means it tries to stay put and the equipment moves... result being that the reading laser usually whams into the disc surface making the aforementioned godawful noise.

    Key lesson: unless it's designed to be mobile (eg laptop drive) don't move anything with a spinning disc in! best case scenario, you just gouge your CD/DVD worst case... well you found out.
