That's probably someone who pranked you by setting scripts or programs on your machine to do that. Just run dtrace or something to find out what programs are looking at media status (for 'closed') and decide whether any of them aren't familiar. Depending on your OS it could be a pretty small script or program....

It may on the other hand be something familiar whose backup function you haven't used or addressed in a while....

How can i open my cd drive to insert my cd?


If the button on the drive won't pop open the drive, then you need to find out what is causing it to stick closed. Most drives have a tiny hole on the door so you can push a paper clip in it to open the door.

Dell xps 2720 dvd drive will not eject cd inside


Turn system off and use a paper clip to manually open the drive door. Straighten a paper clip, then insert it in the small opening to the right of the eject button. This should manually open the door and you can remove any disks in the drive. Then reboot and see if it will open and close normally.

CD tray not opeing


Perhaps it didn't fully latch so the CD drive doesn't think it's closed? Try opening and closing the door manually by straightening out a paperclip, then inserting it into the little hole in the front of the CD door. That should open it. Once open, close it and see if it will now open when you press the Open/Close button.

HP DVD 635 - auto tray open


no ghosts, you either have something jammed up inside of the drive which is keeping the door from closing properly all the way or the door itself is defective.

Either way you would be better off replacing the drive with a new dvd-rw cause the drive would be up to date and the problem with the opening door would go away.

Cd drive opening and closing on its own


You never should have pried it open. Only use the manual eject pin-hole with a paperclip. Noe it seems the drive tray is damaged and will not close properly so it is constantly opening and closing trying to find home. The drive will need replaced.

52-32-52 CD Internal Drive Tray Opening And Closing Problems


Hi,

Since the CD drive still reads the disc, then repairing the unit is to your advantage. Repair involves, removing the drive from the desktop and removing the 4 screws underneath. The two halves/covers could now be separated and removed. Under the tray would be a gear mechanism that slides the tray in/out. it is powered by a motor through a small rubber belt. It is likely that the belt has deformed and would require replacement. This belt is similar to those used in audio electronic equipment and therefore would normally be available from your friendly neighborhood electronics parts store.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

If the drive door sticks after you have used the paper clip to open it, look under the tray at the drive teeth (if any). Apply a liberalm coating of general purpose grease to the rwo inches of teeth at the end of the drive tray nearest you and close the drive door again. Open and close a few times to see if the door is now free. This worked for me on my Dell Inspiron 3100. Try it.
