Hello Mitch656, I think you aren't getting replies, because this is an odd one. My 1st inclination would be the door switch on the drive somehow. You know how you can nudge it when it is open and it will close? There is a switch that says the door is fully closed/the door is fully open, otherwise the loading motor would just run.

However, you also mention that the drive makes noise like it is seeking for a disc? The drive will also do this when the switch says "the drawer is fully closed, look for the CD". The obvious suspect is the drive itself. You can also try uninstalling the drive from device manager, and rebooting and let the PC find the drive anew. I'd think it unlikely it is a driver error, but that is worth trying as well, before you spring for a new drive (or put up with the irritation).

A place to start: I would do an off-line virus scan and malware scan. I have seen viruses that open the CD/DVD tray. Just a guess.
