Hi, Im not sure why but at completly random times my dvd drive opens and closes by itself, Sometimes it doesnt close by itself and i have to do it, It is a Samsung 616t that came with the pc which is now 5 years old. Im running XP.
Thanks in advance

I've had a similar problem with a Samsung - when I open to insert disc, it closes before it has a chance to accept it almost as if the slight weight of the disc prompts it to do so. Also, when I press to open it does so but immediately closes and sometimes when it is actually open and I try to take a disc out it closes just as I get my fingers on the disc. I finally overcame this problem by pressing to open and keeping my finger on the open button - then I closed it by doing the same. It did not cure it straight away but doing this over a few days from time to time corrected it.

A good blast with compressed air might do the trick.

Funny i was looking at the compressed air only yesterday as the pc has collected alot of dust.
