| Hi all,
| I'm running this 1U server with a cd-RW-rom-drive.
| Every now and then the drive opens. Unfortunately it's a laptop
| sort of drive because it's in a 1U server, so it won't close by
| itself.
| I was wondering if there's any standard proces running on FreeBSD that
| opens it; I haven't monitored it's behaviour closely because I don't
| have permanent access to the box.
| There's no -eject option in any of my cdrecord cmds.
| I'm running FreeBSD 4.8 with a cd0: Slimtype COMBO LSC-24081M 3M35
| Removable CD-ROM SCSI-0 device. McAfee is installed (for MailScanner).
| I suppose it should be possible to lock the drive; the supportteam at
| C&W where the box is hosted are getting a bit annoyed [they're
| considering superglue at this point].
| Any suggestions as to why it opens and how this could be prevented
| [other than the Cable and Wireless-solution =:0] greatly appreciated!
| Cheers,
| Marko

        I had the similar prob. with my Creative IDE CDROM
        drive. It was due to improper power supply to CDROM. The
        connector attached to CDROM was faulty. I replaced SMPS
        and it solved my problem.
