I Have XP and whenever I am on my computer, the CD burner opens and closes repeatedly. Sometimes it opens all the way or sometimes in just wiggles back and forth. It won't stop at all. I don't even press the button and it does it. Can someone help me out please?
yeah man thats the strangest thing concerning a cd-rom drive i ever heard.i agree with Nick M your haunted but your not alone i had a hounted cd-rom drive to except mine would continuesly run like it was reading a cd but there was nothing in it then suddenly after hours of doing that it finally stopped and has been working fine since very strange
that is the strangest problem ive ever seen and have no idea whats happening. the button isn't stuck down or anything is it? and yes, check if there is anything stuck inside or stopping it from closing completely!
Well I had problem with that ,a burner would keep opening and closing . Your drive is dirty on the inside . how do I know -well I took my drive a part and found the cd drive door has a series of contacts ,when the contacts get dirty they raise all sorts of problems . I don"t recommend taking your drive a part but blow it out with some compressed air , it might do the trick .
there is an app (can't remember who made it) that hides its process and just randomly opens and closes the CD-tray, intended as a joke...
If you look at most trojan clients they have the ability to open close the CD-Tray (must just be something easy to code) which is why i think it may be that.
Either way, scan the drive for virii, and check all start-up methods, should sort the problem.
