It's round and wobbles, but madam, it's a mouse pad, not a floppy disk

Right hole, but two into one does not go...

Mentioned in a previous On-Call, but worth a repeat...

One of the technicians gets called out to deal with a weird problem... User had put a CD in his DVD drive, but he was still seeing the contents of the previous CD he'd been using.

Oh, and the CD he'd just put in must have been too thick, because it took several attempts to slam the drive shut and is was making some god-awful grinding noises.

Turns out he hadn't removed the first CD, and had put the second one in on top of it.

The drive had to be taken out and dismantled to remove the CD's.
