Either you have a computer-virus that is sending "commands" to the optical drive to open/close, or you need to spend about $30 to buy a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer.

SOURCE: DVD/CD rom drive issues

Hi, it appears that CDW/DVDROM is only detected in BIOS but in normal windows. This is a known issue from Microsoft eventhough you are using Windows Xp or Vista the CDW/DVDROM is not detected and does not appear in My computer icon. This can be easily fixed by a registry tweaks.

Please click on this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929461/en-us and then delete the upper/lowerfilters which is blocking the CDW/DVDROM to appear on your windows.

Hope this helps!!!

Thanks

CD opens itself and closes


Either something is wrong with the physical open/close sensors, or there is a computer-virus on your computer that is intentionally causing the open/close actions.

I have a HP PC and the DVD CD Rom keeps opening and closing by it self. How can I fix it?


First, with the power off, open the computer case and disconnect the 4-pin power plug from the drive. Then at least the drive won't open and close while you try to figure out what's wrong.

One possibility is that the front panel open/close button on the drive is sticking. Then the drive thinks you're always pressing the button. In that case, replace the drive. New DVD/CD burner drives are only $30 or so, so it isn't worth repairing one. I think you'll probably find the drive is just faulty.

Another possibility is that your computer has a virus. Random drive opening and closing was caused by a virus going around a while ago. I don't remember the virus name, but it was quite a while ago. Still, it's worth checking unless you're absolutely sure you have up-to-date antivirus software and you've been scanning your computer regularly. I would suggest downloading the free version of MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware and doing a complete scan to see if it finds anything. If it does, let it correct the problem.

If it turns out to be a virus problem, don't forget to plug the power connector back into the CD drive when you've cleared the trouble.

Hope this helps, and thanks for using Fixya!

Dvd/cd drive door keeps opening and closing by itself


If the trouble isn't being caused by some screwy virus or software problem, the best solution is to replace the drive. New drives are quite inexpensive and widely available in retail stores (at higher prices) and online.

My cd/dvd opens then closes


> I've already replaced it once

Well, I've seen CD-drives that would re-open, when you try to close them -- it is _falsely_ detecting a "jam" as the tray is closing, and then just re-opens the tray, rather than "forcing" itself to close.

Replacing the CD-drive is the only way to fix that type of "false-positive" jam-detection conditions.

But, since you've done that, either you were unlucky-enough that the replacement drive was also "defective", or, you have a computer-virus on your computer that is maliciously issuing commands to the CD to "open-the-tray".
