    I have a strang problem. I am running win/XP Pro SP2, I have two optical drives a CDRW and a DVD. Yesterday my CDRW started opening on it's own when I shut the drawer it would reopen. I shut down and rebooted it stopped opening for about 10 min. then it started agin. I went into device manager and removed drive. I rebooted and XP recognized the drive and I had no more problems last night. I rebooted this morning and was away from the computer for about 30 min. and when I came back I found the drawer open agin. Any ideas? Besides a ghost!

    While the paranoid will suggest a virus/hoax application (and they do exist) I would putit down to faulty hardware within the drive as a first choice.
