I thought Macs were the only computers with this bug. Certain model G4's & G5's had the exact same behavior. Either when first booting or waking from sleep, the CD drive would open..

Couple of things....

You can try upgrading the firmware on the drive, it could be an actual bug.

Also, did you ever re-order or change the arrangement of drive letters?

I have problems consistently with my DVD drives, I'm onto my 4th in almost as many years.

Sometimes changing to a different cable/socket gives it a bit more life, but inevitably they will refuse to open at all.

Just in the last week or two, it takes a couple tries to read COD5WAW disk, so looks like I'll be up for another one soon

Also, for months now when I open it, it will go fully open then instantly start closing again, makes hard to get the disk in >_> But, if that is similar to what you have as well, then no doubt just buy another one
