image for DVD-ROM Drive stops burgular
The heroic optical drive back to reinstalling XP

A DVD-ROM drive stopped a burglar yesterday after he grazed the eject button, following the draw coming out and hitting his stomach, winding him and causing him to fall to the ground.

Melli Witmore 34, of Swanley, Kent, went downstairs after hearing a noise, then seeing Paul Romback 20, on the floor in pain with her DVD-ROM drive opened.

"I was really angry" said Melli, "I was reinstalling Windows XP as well, now I have to do it all over again, sigh".

Paul, a known convict around the area, was convicted two years ago when he broke into an old age pensioners house and was knocked out by her laptops floppy drive when he pressed the eject button too hard, believing the disk to contain her bank details.

"I don't think him and computers are the best of friends" said the police in a statement.

Paul is due to be sentenced later this month.
