I don't know about the particular model of Wearnes, but on
the campus where I work we had a number of Wearnes CDROM
drives on brand new machines that were flakey. Several of
them had to be replaced. In addition, many of them work fine
with pressed CDs, but won't read home-burned ones. This may
or may not be relevant.
