if no go, you may actually have a virus. there are some really stupid ones that do obnoxious things like open and close CD drawers.
Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .
That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.
If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.

Have you donwloaded anything from unsecure sources that may be causing this?

if you press the open/close button, can you hear the gears spinning quietly? or do they grind loudly, or make no sound at all, as in nothing is happening?
depending on which of those is the case, a repair might be possible, if you mechanicly inclined enough to open the drive and try...
dont do that yet, post back with the symptoms.

at this point if you want to try opening it up- unless its still fairly new and under warranty! if so, call wherever you got it from and see about a replacement.
otherwise, take a look. it might be fairly obvious, like a gear that popped off (could also explain what is keeping you from pushing the drawer in). worst case, it stays broken, and you have to buy a new one anyway.
