my CD-Rom keeps randomly opening

I've been trying to put some of my CDS on my computer the last few days



NOw all of a sudden my CDr drive keeps randomly opening..sometime it will do a song or 2 and then just eject the disc....sometimes it will just eject it as soon as I put it in....



does anyone have any suggestions on fixing this?

Try virus and spyware scanning. Remove what they find.

I think it might be dust, as I once had the my old DVD player open and close when ever I insert a disk.It will repeat it by itself.Each time I open it would close by itself.Finnaly opened the player and cleaned but after a while the problem continued.Just try cleaning it and see how it goes

Maybe the tray doors have accumulated debris inside the player/recorder. I'd clean it thourougly with some air, then maybe even reinstall the drivers.

I cleaned off the drive and that didn't work


it takes in the CD and gets ready to load it...the light stops flashing, and then it just immediately shoots it right back out...it doesn't ever close by itself

earlier in the year i was having problems with it staying shut and not opening when I hit the button if a burnt CD was in it, but that stopped happening and now this

i'm going to try and reinstall the drivers
