My wife tried to rip the Twilight soudtrack CD with the C10 and it kept spitting the CD back out at her. Good Mr Sooloos.

Bruce,

I mentioned the drive used in the C15 in a previous thread was the TEAC DW-224SS-W93 with the Part No.1977218W-93. I had been getting a snapping sound from both up of the C15, which emanates from the TEAC drive. I actually hadn't really used the drive for loading music as I use my laptop with my dBpoweramp subscription. However like your wife, I tried putting a CD in it the other day and it made a snapping sound and ejected the disk also. I pulled it out took off the cover and found that there was definitely a problem with the drive mechanism.

To date I have not had much success finding the same drive available for replacement and I seriously doubt that this can still be purchased as a spare from Meridian.

I will live without the drive working for the time being but ideally I would still invest in a compatible new drive for completeness, even if I would not probably actually use it.

If anyone has successfully installed an alternative replacement drive, please share this info with Bruce, myself and the greater forum.


Cheers,


Steve M

PS: I hand carried my C15 directly back to Meridian several years ago in March 2013 for a warranty repair and I asked the dealer to have them also supply a replacement drive as a spare, for which I would happily pay for. My drive was manufactured in December 2008 and I bought my C15 in April 2010. Unfortunately the C15 did not arrive back to the dealer for collection until just before my departure from the UK that evening so there was nothing I could do about it not coming back with a spare drive as requested, which would be very handy right now !

When I replaced a drive in one of the. C10s I have, I was able to get one from Meridian America. I will ask on Monday if there are any more. If there are, I will purchase them for spares. As I recall, they weren't that expensive.
