sounds to me like a poltergeist....







just kidding :smileyhappy: 


Could be a bunch of things:

Check your easyeject utility, maybe something messed up with it or running it-  Type easyeject in Windows Start Search bar and hit enter....anything funky there?


Also you could have a virus or script which is ejecting your cd to mess with you, (example here: http://wordpress.com/tag/a-virus-that-eject-cd/ )  Did you install any hacked software or download any keygens lately?


Or maybe you have a CD writing program that is stuck in a loop thinking it needs media, you install any cd buring programs recently?
