    My CD-ROM drive keeps randomly ejecting, then going back in by itself without me doing anything. I can just sit and watch the computer (a desktop) as it does this. It's also not doing it at regular intervals. It just started doing this, too. I had updated my Java, but that's the only thing I did today; I don't know if it's related.

    Is this a symptom of a particular issue? I sure hope this isn't a regular problem, as it drives me crazy while the drive keeps ejecting, then going back in, while I try to work or surf on the Net.

    Can you eject with a button from your keyboard?

    If I can, I'm not aware of it. And I'm not pressing one when it decides to eject.

    I'm saying this 'cause a lot of multimedia keyboards, like mine, have a button to eject the drive.

    Or, your CD-ROM drive is faulty. Could be misalignment from pushing the tray by hand instead of pushing the button.

    It is an older computer.

    I'll keep an eye on it for the next few days and see if it continues. Thanks.
