For some reason, everytime I open the drive with a CD in it,
it opens and then closes again. If I press the open button
the second time, it opens normally. Does anyone know how
I can fix this problem?

it's really dumb, cuz sometimes i forget that it does that
so i press open, it opens, and as i take the cd out, the drive
closes. i mean, i can live with it, but if anyone knows how
i can fix it, i would really appreciate it.

i find that my lite-on cdrw does weird stuff too... when i boot up my computer (not very often since i leave it on 24/7) it opens the cd-rw drive and shuts it as it is booting... i always thought it was odd... wish i could tell ya why...

update to the latest bios (instruction on lite-on website)
unplug and plug back both IDE cable and Molex connector.

Hope this helps :)

Sounds like a faulty momentary switch to me (the open button). RMA it & let us know how you get on - i'd be interested to hear.
