Default Sometimes on ejecting CD the CDROM ejects a still spinning CD!


I have noticed this problem over the last one month. Sometimes when I press the eject button on the CDROM ( not writer .. ) The CDROM ejects the tray before the CD has stopped spinning completely.
So the CD spins 2-3 turns before stopping.

This happens a few times not necessarily with the same CD. Happened with an original Game CD too..

I noticed now that when I put a CD in the drive spins for a long time maybe at least 4-5 minutes before stopping. This is even if autplay is off.

This long period of CD spin ... is it normal. I think that pressing the eject button during this long spin is what causes it to eject without being stopped.

I am running my machine in dusty conditions. Do you think it could be a dust problem ? I've never cleaned my CD ROm with the So called CD head cleaners available.

Or do you think the CD ROM is on its way out.

Thanks in Advance

CD's sometimes keep spinning on their way out for me too. Its normal for it to do that sometimes.
