Default DVD-ROM, a life of their own?

I have a Liteon DVD/16x CD/48x ide rom drive. I just built my PC so I'm presently trying to get through the BIOS and set up my SATA drive but my rom keeps opening and closing without me doing anything and when I do try to open it, it does not respond. Basically I have no control over it, but it is opening and closing on its own...wtf?

Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe
Maxtor 80GB/7200RPM/8MBCache/ATA-150 SATA
AMD Athlon XP 2600+ Barton
Kingston HyperX 512MB PC3200/DDR400
ATi Radeon 9800Pro 128MB

Cosmic, have you checked to make sure 1) you have the correct jumper settings and 2) make sure your molex connectors are securely connected to the drive?
