Default CD Drive sliding in and out continuously

The CD Drive on my computer is continuously sliding in and out. (A few seconds inbetween) If I open explorer the drive doesn't register. The green light on the CD drive is constantly flashing.
It was doing it a while back, but came right. But now it's doing it again and it's driving me crazy! Does anyone know what might be wrong?
I have done a virus scan.

thanks

I imagine its probably just gone bad and is useless. Worth a try for Autorun. How old is it?

I think you're a little lost! He was talking about a CD Drive?

Ahh! You've got me confused now.

I hate the buggers who don't reply.
