So, My computer DVD Drive keep opening on its own asking for me to insert a disk in to the D:/ , usually when the computer is woken up but also sometimes at random. I have to reach over the close it via the button. I'm an office IT guy and it frustrates me to hell that I cant determine why it keeps doing this. Scanned for viruses, and spyware and I'm getting nothing and I don't remember when this started as I got use to just closing the drive and going about my business. but this should not be happening and now its getting annoying.

 

So anybody got any ideas?

It's probably a program installed that left some resources it uses on the disc. You said it happens when the computer is woken, other than that how often does it happen? Since it happens at a wake event, it could be some service or background software that is looking for a disc.

 

First let's see what you got.

 

  • Download the free version of Speccy from piriform (there is also a "portable" version if you do not want to actually install anything.)
  • Run Speccy.exe if you use a 32-bit (x86) OS or run the 64-bit version of you run a 64 bit OS.
  • Let Speccy do its thing, it may take a while
  • When Speccy finishes click the File Menu and select Publish Snapshot
  • Click Copy to Clipboard
  • Paste the link you copied in your next reply. It should look like this: http://speccy.piriform.com/results/tsQ2oSFGAwvqpWwZgknxESl

I was thinking its some background service but i dont see anything that would have any reason to ask for a disk ever. Here's the link http://speccy.piriform.com/results/eWNuYDp7HxRGJAaGsx7TTdp

Try a clean boot:  http://www.thewindowsclub.com/what-is-clean-boot-state-in-windows

If that stops the disk behavior, then re-enable things a few at a time until you figure out which it is.

Good luck!

Did you watch the exorcist on your PC? I saw someone else having a problem with their optical drive from Creative and someone else said it's a common issue with Creative drives. I think maybe going into device manager and disabling it and if you ever need it just enable it for that time.
