Optical Drive Closes On Its Own
Dec 7, 2012

Dell XPS 8300 Win 7 64bit Home Premium

The optical drive closes on its won intermittently or when nudged slightly downwards (like when placing the disk in the tray).  Somehow I thinks its hardware related.  PC is clear of any virus or malware.  Any thoughts on this?

Was thinking of replacing it with a Bluray player/writer.  Any recommendations?  TIA
