I can see the drive being dirty cause the person that originally had it where smokers.
The drive actually opens like an inch and gets stuck so I dont know. Doesnt seem like anything is in it though.
Its not melted actually. There is like 5 plastic columns that are attached to the plastic top. Then under that is a metal sheet. Those columns are melded on the sheet on each corner and in the center.
If I cant fix it I'll just break it and keep the drives. That HD would come in handy. I wanna play CVS2, Hunter the Reckoning: Redeemer and XGRA though. And XMugen I guess.
