CD Writer Tray Opens and Closes Randomly

  Cliff98 12:15 05 Sep 06

I have a Phillips CD writer on my Windows ME system that has recently started repeatedly opening and closing when not in use. This appears to happen randomly whatever I am doing and can only be stopped by switching off the PC. Can anyone help?

Could be Spyware/virus related, do you have eject shortcuts on your keyboard,they could be stuck, it may also be bad sensors in the drive itself

Also check IDE cable is fully inserted at motherboard and at rear of drive.
