DVD burner drive - opening

  jack 14:46 24 Jan 06

My DVD Burner/play drive keeps opening when activated.

Insert a disk to read - click open -drawer opens.
Insert a disk to Burn- click Burn -Drawer opens

No message. sometime the disk contents display for a slit second and then an empty window.

What's up?
Drive ailing -Software glitch -New Nasty ?
Any ideas
The second drive -CD-R only runs OK

Afternoon jack, have you tried an uninstall via device manager to see if it corrects itself?

Seems to be behaving now without doing anthing - masterful inactivity they say is a cure for many things.
So will tick as 'solved'
