There was this old drive at school that did something similar. I suspect it just has something wrong with the sensors that tell it where the try is, or just some problems with the circuts... I doubt there's much you could do...

It could be dirty. I dunno if this is relevant.. but my TV DVD player did this and I bought a CD lens cleaner.. it stopped ejecting... This could be the problem.
