It's probably bad but just in case see if it opens and closes when the OS isn't loaded. Start up the computer and tap the PAUSE/BREAK key to freeze the posting process. Or tap F8 to show the boot menu and let it sit on that page while you attempt to open and close the tray. If it works OK then the problem is in windows--some software trying to access it. It if doesn't work outside of the OS then replace the drive.
