Hi IdleWild,
Refusing to open, you mean when you push the button nothing happens??
Have you installed any new software or hardware lately?/
Do you see the drives listed in Device Manager??
Right click on the drive and select eject, does that work ??
Get a paper clip, insert one end , carefully, into the little hole in the front. See if that will open .

I'm also having the same problem..I just reboot my computer and it comes back to normal but after sometime, its stops responding and the CDRW drive disappears from my computer too sometimes. I still haven't a found a solution yet.
