Drive keeps opening randomly ALL the time!

Hey folks,

I’ve got a slimtype combo 24082k lite-on drive in my laptop.

Lately it just sometimes opens randomly, and appears not to recognise media most of the time. I upgraded the drive from OEM Acer firmware (I’m guessing the OEM firmware on it was Acer, as it came with the Acer laptop…) but doesn’t help the problem with the drive opening all the time.

I suspected the switch was faulty or something; but could it be that in actuality the drive is opening because it just can’t read the media, ie: a Lens problem instead?

Searching google for this is extremely hard, as ‘drive keeps opening’, etc, and similar search phrases don’t bring up any information, which makes me think it’s only me that’s had problems with this drive!

Cheers in advance,
