How do I fix my DVD/CD drive from constantly checking for discs?
The Offender DVD/CD Drive: MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ8A2ASW
Hey I really need some help or some insight into this problem, I can hardly find anything about it online.
Asus u56e laptop, windows 7 64bit.
Whenever I open up itunes, or I open up winamp, or I open up any AUDIO/DISC related program, my CD drive makes a clunking noise, and checks to see if a disc is in there. The little CD symbol next to my mouse shows up, and then it stops.
This happens EVERY time i open winamp, and every time i open itunes.
Whats worse about itunes, is it checks the CD drive every 3-4 minutes while itunes is open. Its VERY annoying because when it does this, it freezes iTunes for a second or two.
It also does the disc-check, every time I wake up from sleep mode.
Ive had to stop using itunes complletely because of this.
Oh yea, and my DISC DRIVE IS EMPTY. There is NO disc in the drive ANY time this happens.
Please any help would be appreciated, Thanks in advance!

It may be worthwhile to see what Device Manager has to say about the drive.
