Artec WSM-52x CD/DVD Drive opening & closing

artec wsm-52x Problem...My CDROM drive keeps opening and closing. I tried disabling it in Device Mgr, but the problem still exists. I also uninstalled it in Device Mgr, but still it keeps opening and closing. I ran a scan of my computer using Microsoft Security Essentials and it didn't find anything. I also ran a scan using IObit Security to get rid of Trojans and cookies, but that didn't solve the problem either. Please help me stop my CDROM drive from opening and closing. I got so frustrated that I pulled the tray out, not you can hear the drive still trying to open and close the tray even though it's not there.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Probably a defective drive and now it's really defective. If you pulled the tray out, it's shot now. Buy a new one.

I have not dealt with that model but have managed to get a lite on drive working again after the tray had been pulled out. That won't solve your problem though. It sounds like you have a short or a stuck button. I would pull the drive and see if there is any physical evidence of a short or if you can clean the button area. Given the costs of optical drives it is probably more worth it to buy a new one.
