what you should do is check that the button on the cd drive is not sticking in any way also if you have a modified case on your machine that covers the cd drive check to make sure that it allows the cd drive button a clear area to operate in.

if this doesn;t work try checking your computer over for a virus as this could be the cause.

an up to date virus scanner such as avg will do the trick (you can get a free version of this for personal use from www.downloads.com)

if you do all that and it still doesn't work consult the manufacturer of the cd drive and it may be the case that the cd drive is just an old one and is past it's sell by date if you know what i mean.
