Cool Cdrom will not stay closed


I'm running suse 9.2. I've got all my updates for it. The problem that's driving me crazy is my cdrom ejects on it's own whether ther's a cd in or not. I push it back in and it might stay sometimes 5minutes other times comes right back out. Am wondering if there is a program in the background running that makes it eject. I've reloaded the operating system three times and the same thing happens every time. My other computer had no trouble at all with the same distro. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try a different CD-rom if possible.

My other cdrom is a burner and it will not show up in my computer. It did show up the first time I put the distro in but not the 2nd or third.I.ve noticed that when I press an icon of a browser or kaffene it pops out.Now i'm on opera typing this and it just popped out again. My other cdrom (The burner) I've tried over and over trying to get it to show but no luck. It's a usb device. Strange it showed up the first time but not now.

I just don't think it is a software issue. It very may well be but I just don't think so.

Do you have a windows box that you can put your faulty cd-rom in? That was we can tell if it still ejects in Windows.

To get your other cd-rom to work, try upgrading to SuSe 9.3. Maybe they have the right drivers for it in that version.

cdrom

remove any CD
close the tray
turn off PC
use paperclip in the emergency eject hole to open the tray and pull it all the way out by hand(leave it open)
restart PC
As PC boots it should reset the CD tray which has become 'unsynced'

Figured out the cdrom problem. It was the usb burner causing all the problems. I disconnected it and no more problem. I had it on a usb hub and it would not show up in my computer. When I connected it direct to the computer usb it would show up but made the other cdrom eject sporadically. Guess I'll just leave it disconnected on that computer. Thank you all for the help
