It might be a hardware problem, the RELEASE mechanism could be stuck to open!!! You could try to see if you can fix by finding a pin hole on the drive, usually by the button to open the drive. Placing a needle or pin in the needle opening and pushing firmly to see if you can't get the drive to become unstuck!! Don't press to hard or you might break the drive. This is where I'd first check, if you that don't work check your Task manager and see what programs are working!!
