Its only recently been doing it - I have tried rebooting. I have also tried doing a spyware search. However I haven't tried anything else. It worked perfectly ok up til yesterday.
When I press the button to get it to open, it opens fine but then doesn't even pause before going back in again. My fingers are not really nimble enough to grab the CD and do it all quickly.
Any suggestions?

The tray motor doesn't stop quickly enough and the mechanism continues into the "Close" cycle, like if you had begun pushing it in. If you grab and pull (Gently!) onthe tray as it comes to the fully open position, you may make it stop before it begins to close. Eventually a new unit will be needed, as you will probably grow tired of this procedure.
