Default CD Drive problem

I have a standard CD/R writer and it has worked great up untill a few days ago.

When I open up the tray the tray pops out and (by itself) closes.
But, the thing is, when I pop a CD in it, it will close, and the light will blink a few times and open again. But that's not all, it will close, and continue to open and then close for about 10-20 cycles. After I wait for it to read my disc, it will have a 50-50 chance either 1. Staying open and will not close, or 2. Close and read my disc like nothing is wrong.

I have excellent spyware protection from multiple programs, so I couldn't imagine it being a spyware issue.

This problem just started occuring a few days ago and I can't figure out what could be the problem with it!

Any help or just suggestions would be great, Thanks!

I think something in the drive is faulty.Go to the web site of the manufacturer and check out if there is any info on this.
